Our Living Memorial

Care Packages Hit Their Target

CarePkg-Rocco-Michael.jpgLast month, we delivered 496 care packages to units of 3d Marine Aircraft Wing, currently deployed in support of the USMC’s Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force – Crisis Response – Central Command. The packages contained assorted snacks including jerky and trail mix, reading material, games, and cards to write home with, along with Christmas cards from our members and guests. It was our largest shipment EVER, thanks to your donations!
