March 26 - Last week we received two large boxes filled with supplies from Kentucky. This article is from a Greensburg, KY newspaper.
Thank you Nathan for holding a donation drive for our deployed troops.Your donations are in care packages on their way to Afghanistan. You are an amazing young man!

Nathan Davis recently collected items to be sent in care packages to soldiers deployed in foreign lands. He undertook this project as a challenge from his church youth group leader, Vicki Bishop. She asked the young people of the church to try to think of some type of service they could do. Nathan had heard of a group in Massachusetts called Cape Cod Cares for the Troops. It was started in 2005 by a twelve year old boy named Dylan DeSilva and the group still sends care packages on a weekly basis to our troop members stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq. Nathan asked church members, friends, and students to donate travel size toiletries, gums, and mints. He was also given monetary donations that he used to purchase more of the same items. He also asked anyone who was willing to write a letter or sign a card to be included in care packages that would let the men and women serving far away from home that they are never forgotten.
Nathan is the eleven year old son of Mike and Valerie Davis and is in the 5th grade at Green County Intermediate School. He would like to thank everyone who donated items to this very worthy cause.
Anyone interested in finding out more about the organization Nathan sent the items to, can do so by going to

December 24 - Christmas Care Packages have started arriving to our deployed troops. Wanted to share a few thank you notes. I wanted to write and say thank you so much for the support you are showing my team and I! The care packages you have sent have made a world of difference in daily life here in Afghanistan, and we all appreciate them more than you know! We put in a lot of long hours here and it is so nice to receive support packages that connect us back with the normal world from time to time. Thank you for taking the time to show us that we are supported back home! We find a use for every single item included in the boxes. Again, thank you so much for your support!

SSG CAMPBELL, MARK
