Wyoming currently has 700 men and women serving in the military, including many from Sweetwater County. Some of those individuals are far from home serving in a foreign country, many asked to return for more than one tour of duty.
We have been asked to spear-head the Hometown Heroes program. By participating in the program, we can send a bit of home to our people serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, as well as other locations.
Attached to this note is a list of items we have been asked to collect. Please be as generous as you are able. LMS students will collect the items and deliver them to the VFW Post. They will then ship them to our men and women in the military. We will also accept monetary contributions to help defray the cost of mailing the items overseas (each package costs $18-$20 to send). If contributing by check please make it payable to VFW Post #2321.
Our collection efforts will continue through November 29.
Thank you for your help in supporting our troops.
