Pictured above was the first delivery of diapers from Post 205 for the newly formed 'Operation Wipeout' on Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 1400 hours.
Operation Wipe Out is part of Dennis J. Becker Post 205, American Legion, Community Outreach Program, where Post 205 is seeking to help military families at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) and the Training Depot at Parris Island in Beaufort. I have established a point of contact at the base with a public relations person and I learned that the military communities are in need of baby diapers. I am asking you to please consider donating to purchase diapers for the military families in Beaufort. Our goal is to reach $1000, by April 1, 2021, to deliver the Diapers to MCAS and Parris Island Recruit Depot. Notification will be sent out when we make the presentation.
Thank you so much in advance for your generosity and continued support of Dennis J. Becker American Legion Post 205, Bluffton. Adjutant Mike Miranda can fill you in on further details where you can send your checks. Check is to be made out American legion Post 205. Memo line: Operation Wipeout.

Operation Wipe Out 2022
To the American Legion Post 205 Membership,
“Operation Wipeout” is now one year old, and Post 205 will continue to provide Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) and the Training Depot at Parris Island items that they need. The items needed by the young military families continue to be baby diapers. Our goal is to provide $1,000. worth of diapers of varying sizes.
Your charitable contribution will go a long way in helping these young military families. We hope to make delivery of the diapers by Spring, 2022. The “Operation Wipeout” Committee already has a pretty good idea of the diaper sizes the families require so there should be no problems. If we should require assistance regarding the transportation of the many boxes of diapers, we will let you know.
UPDATE (5/24/2022): We have reached our goal of over $1000 for Operation Wipeout. Your donations will make a difference to struggling military families at MCAS Beaufort in need of diapers. We will now order the diapers of various sizes for a delivery date of June 23rd. We still need your donations to go toward Operation Wipe Out 2023. Thank you.
Please make out your donations to American Legion Post 205
