DAR Judge David Campbell Chapter Honors Troops Overseas

Monday, October 30, 2017

The Judge David Campbell Chapter’s October chapter meeting fell on the anniversary and in honor of that anniversary and the current NSDAR Theme of Moving Forward in Service to America; the chapter’s program for the month was a service project for veterans. 

The Judge David Campbell Chapter members started collecting various items for troops overseas since June of this year. At the October meeting they packed 49, large, flat-rate USPS boxes filled with snacks, cd's, dvd's, toiletry items for both males and females, small toys, candies, magazines, and more.

"As an officer in the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps, one of my former Sea Cadets is now a Marine," said Regent Stacy Kehoe.  "His unit was shipped overseas to Iraq. As regent of the Judge David Campbell Chapter, TSDAR, I was extremely blessed to see this outpouring of love and support to our troops." 

The American Job Center collected donations from their employees and Geoff Post, president/CEO, and Lorie Heller, vice president from Tower Community Bank in Jasper, also supported the full payment for shipping the 49 boxes. 

In a separate shipment, Cole Webster with the Barn Nursery donated 20, "24 inch" Christmas trees to ship to troops overseas as well.  Chris Holley and Kris Jones from the Heritage House in Chattanooga donated 20 small Christmas skirts that were hand decorated as well as several hand-knitted helmet liners from their "Craft 'N Crop" nights at the Heritage House.

All by the same play book. All from average people. We want this, you have this, we get this. I worked with TVA as a ... (click for more)

Oh, for decades I’ve know the annual Army-Navy football game, the latest just played this weekend, was special. A half-century ... (click for more)
