VFW Post 6097 is remembering Adair soldiers overseas
They've prepared packages for five local servicemen. If you'd like to help with the project, directions are below
By Cathy Luttrell
News from VFW Post 6097 and VFW Auxiliary
As the citizens of Adair County are gathering for the holidays, many of them are thinking of a son, daughter or other family member who is not able to be with them this year. They are currently serving as members of our Armed Forces. Many are at bases or posts through out the United States and overseas. For some overseas, the holiday season will be just like any other day. There will be no Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas tree. They will wait in anticipation for a letter or package from home.
On Tuesday this week Columbia VFW Post 6097 and Ladies Auxiliary VFW 6097 prepared care packages for soldiers currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Previously this month, we advertised that if anyone knew of a soldier from Adair County currently serving in Iraq or Afghanistan, we would send them a care package for Christmas.
We received five names for the packages. The names we received are: Shannon Burden, Nathan Clemons, Dustin Corbin, Zachary Janes, and Jeffrey Adam Yarberry.
After a shopping trip, we had many items to send including food items, puzzle books, and board games.
Since Post Commander Jimmy Luttrell had previously served in Iraq, he was aware of some of the items that they would like to have. One item that we laughed about was pudding cups. He said they were like gold over there.
For families on a limited income, the buying of these items and the shipping is very costly. If anyone else in our community would like to send a package or even a Christmas card, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you addresses for these fine soldiers. - Cathy Luttrell
