Support Operation Scales to Tales 2 and bring books to our troops overseas

Some of you folks might have heard of Operation: Paperback which is a great non-profit organization that promises to provide gently used books to our troops overseas as a way to thank them for their service and help occupy some of their down time with entertaining distractions.

Well, the Cobra 1st Legion, a G.I. Joe-themed cosplay/charity group is supporting this great organization with their own “Operation Scales to Tales 2”!  They’ve got a post up on Facebook with all of the information, I strongly recommend you guys check it out and do what you can do to help them out.  They do some excellent G.I. Joe cosplaying, and kudos to them for this endeavor.

Check out all of the details on the Cobra 1st Legion Facebook page.
