Thanks for supporting our troops
To the Editor:
We, the Auxiliary of Unit 24, would like to thank you all for supporting our troops.
We recently held the “Super Benefit” on February 19th. This event will help us to send care packages through our Comforts From Home program, which supports our local troops.
This event was very successful. The newly formed band Fair Enough played to a sold out crowd and honored us all by playing the song “Some Gave All” this gave the true meaning as to why we were all there.
For those of you who were able to attend. we thank you for your generosity. For the many people who donated anonymously, we thank you.
