Many of our troops are positioned at posts where there is no access to supplies other than the bare essentials. Many of our troops are with others who never receive a care package or correspondence from a loved one.
Organize a collection of necessary items to support active troops overseas, local vets, homeless vets, and our wounded warriors resident in our local VA hospitals.
