SOLDIERS' WISH LIST
Yellow Ribbon Program: Here is our Soldiers Wish List! Any of these items you can donate will be greatly appreciated. We send packages all year long, and your donations are what keeps these packages going to our troops. You can also include cards and letters, we will send them with the packages.
BEANIE BABIES: A really good excuse to get rid of those things (don't buy new ones, collect them from your house and ask
your friends)!! We can send some in every package to ALL units as they are really easy for the Soldiers to
carry with them and give to the local kids who love them. These are better than small plastic toys which
will break easily and are not as easy to carry in a pack.
