I'd like to create a pin up calendar which will be provided free to soldiers overseas. Ideally, I would pair up with a deployment platoon (16-44 soldiers) and make them each a calendar which will cover their deployment time. It will be accompanied by vintage-style (not overtly sexual, not naked) pinup photographs on each page. My goal is to make deployed soldiers feel a little more at home and help remind them of all the Americans back home who are so grateful for their hard work and sacrifice.
I would like to start with a relatively small number of soldiers (two squads) and if the project is successful I'd like to continue to send calendars to our troops. Once I receive the funding and complete the calendar, I would like to start another project through Kickstarter to raise more money to buy more calendars, hopefully sending them to entire battalions!
