Home sends Christmas to them.
Surrounded at the U.S. Army Reserve Center by donated gifts of everything from DVDs to animal crackers, Jennifer Stegeman was moved to tears. "It's warmed my heart," said Stegeman, who with the help of a local business group, Saco Spirit, organized the donations to be shipped to the 94th Military Police Company, which has a platoon based here.
Stegeman, who lives in Dayton, said she realized that something special had to be done for the troops in Iraq once their families realized they wouldn't be home for Christmas.
By the way...the 2nd Graders in Cedar Rapids finished the stockings for CPT Patti and her Gators...and they also collected some 61 pounds of candy and goodies to stuff the stockings with.
God bless the little ones...and teacher Roberta for leading them on this expedition of giving.
