Help with Goodies for Troops

Members Can Have Packages Sent to Kin/Friends in Military

Post military liaison Pat Dodge is issuing a call for goodies for Christmas packages for troops as well as a call for names and addresses of individual service men and women to receive a holiday package.

Any member of the post, auxiliary or Sons of the American Legion who has a relative or friend serving in the Armed Forces, "please get me his/her name, email address and mailing address so that I can plan my Christmas packages for them," Pat said. "Depending on where they are in the world, I may need to send packages out by the first week of December so they'll arrive by Christmas."

She noted: " I will need home baked cookies for these boxes. The more who bake cookies, the more packages we can send out."

Pat also reported that "our adopted troops in Afghanistan have returned home" to Fort Drum.
