Area soldiers are longing to be home on Thanksgiving. There is
an effort to allow four of them to do just that. An account at First National
Bank has been established to help pay for soldiers to return home
for a visit. Whirlwind Counseling's Ed Poley says it's the least we
can do for our men and women in the military.
"It's the opportunity to say to the soldiers in our area, thank you,"
Poley said. "Soldiers, they go. When the order comes down
they go do it. Now they have a chance to come home and spend
a few days with their family during Thanksgiving."
The military will fly the soldiers to the mainland but this money will
help them get them all the way home. For more information call
