WE SALUTE OUR VETERANS AND FAMILIES

WE SALUTE OUR VETERANS AND FAMILIES

End of deployment happens for some in the active military just in time for Veterans Day.

Hundreds of members of the Wisconsin National Guard’s 115th Fighter Wing returned from a four month deployment to Afghanistan yesterday. The nearly 300 troops spent their time overseas supporting the allied mission and helping coalition troops.

On this Veterans Day we have a timely story for today.  A New Hampshire grandma is sending over 100-thousand holiday cards to U.S. troops stationed around the world. 

Dr. Laura Landerman-Garber of Hollis, New Hampshire says she and her family did their first mailing in 2003.  Two years ago, she formed the non-profit “Holiday Cards 4 Our Military New Hampshire Challenge” to help with postage, and invited local students to participate.  Landerman-Garber says her efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. 

Last year, she received holiday cards from service members based in 30 states and Canada.
