VFW sends Christmas cheer


December 12, 2018

Snacks, newspapers, hats, Christmas cards and more were stuffed into the care packages.

Whatever could fit, went in and was sent to troops overseas Tuesday afternoon by volunteers from VFW Post 2312.

According to Jim Shoemaker, Commander of the post, the VFW sent 125 boxes to servicemen all over the world. Shoemaker said any serviceman not stationed in the continental United States were eligible to receive a care package, saying some of the boxes were sent to locations in Hawaii and Alaska. Shoemaker said packages were also sent to the USS Antietam and several classified addresses.
