I would like to thank Gene Haukoos for sponsoring a Care Package drive for the National Guard. However, I would also like to see some local group sponsor something for the other branches Marine, Navy, Air Force, Army, and Coast Guard. If it weren't for these men and women, we would not have the freedoms we do have. And they deserve to know that we care about them and appreciate all they do. I believe their families appreciate it also knowing that their loved one is being supported.
Remember with the privacy laws that you will have to request that the families contact you with names and addresses.
The military will no longer just give you a list. And it may not be the community's obligation send anything extra but we should feel privileged and honored to do something special for all our area military personnel at this holiday season.
