In preparing for the upcoming Christmas and Valentine mail collections, Friends of Our Troops would like to extend special thanks to American Legion Auxiliary Unit 108 in Franklin, which participated in the most recent campaign.
Led by Debra McGill, they were the number one group in North Carolina as well as number two American Legion Auxiliary and in the top half-dozen among all groups nationally. Two of their members, Mary Louise Womack and Wilma McCall were the number two and number five individuals nationwide.
Family Eyecare, which participated with the Auxiliary, was the top business/employee group in the nation.
Cards and letters are received from across the nation, mixed thoroughly, divided into hundreds of packages, then sent to military units across the U.S. and around the world.
Anyone who would like to know how to join the Fan Mail for the Troops campaign can receive complete information and instructions by sending their name and mailing address to Friends of Our Troops, P.O. Box 65408, Fayetteville, NC 28306. The troops will thank you, and so do we. Ben Wiser
