GREAT gesture, bellsisland!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, it IS a shame they are shipping out RIGHT before the holidays - hopefully, the guys they are replacing get home by Saturday!

Around here we only see a fair number of Army NG folks - mostly weekend drilling, I think? They moved our Air NG's down to Langley Field (Hampton area) a year or so ago.

Thanks for putting the idea out there - I'll certainly be on the lookout to do something similar! We've got a bunch of folks down at Ft. Lee (Petersburg) about 30mi. south of here, but I don't get down that way too often. We DO have a VFW locally - maybe time to stop in there and see what can be done? ;?

Thanks, again, for your thoughtfulness and generosity to the men/women in uniform!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
