Work benefits troops

As we prepare for the upcoming Christmas mail campaign, Mail for Our Military would like to extend a special acknowledgement to those in Blair County who participated in the most recent campaign with the Basilica of St. Michael the Archangel in Loretto.

Linda Foust and family (number one individuals in Pennsylvania and in the top five nationwide), Beverly Jones and family, First Church of Christ (led by Debbie Duffield), Holy Rosary Parish, Kim Berkheimer and students at Ebner Elementary, and Sacred Heart Church, all of Altoona, and Donna Beam of Hollidaysburg.

Mail is received from all across the nation, mixed thoroughly before being divided into hundreds of packages, both large and small, then sent to military units across the U.S. and around the world.

As the continuation of the Vietnam Mail Call project which was launched in 1965, this mail has been bringing smiles to our men and women in uniform for almost a half-century.

Anyone who would like to know how to join the Mail for Our Military campaign can receive complete information and instructions by sending their name and mailing address to P.O. Box 100, New Madrid, MO 63869.

Time is of the essence.

The troops will thank you, and so do we.
