Bringing troops smiles

By From page A5 | October 28, 2013

EDITOR: As we prepare for upcoming Christmas mail campaign, we would like to extend special thanks to the Rescue Up ‘N’ Coming 4-H Club of Placerville, which participated in the most recent campaign. The 4-H club was the No. 1 group in California.

Sophia Cima, one of the club’s members, was the top individual in the state.

Cards and letters are received from all across the nation, mixed thoroughly, then 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 PO Box 100, New Madrid, Mo. 63869. The troops will thank you, and so do we.

KEITH BOARDMAN
