Next loal shipment coming up
Placeholder Image

Dear Editor,
This is a reminder that the Great Bend Military Moms will soon be packing the next shipment of care packages for soldiers. 
If you know of anyone currently serving in the war zones, please get their current military address to me as soon as possible. 
It will be kept confidential.  
We will send them a box loaded with snacks, food, gum, drink mixes, games, DVDs, CDs, books, toys, personal care items, and lots of love and support from home. 
It doesn’t matter where they are from, we just want them to know they are loved and appreciated for the sacrifices they are making while serving our country. 
For more information, to give an address, or make a financial donation, please contact me. 
Also, if you have given us an address before, please let me know if they are still deployed, at the same address, at a different address, or have returned from deployment. 
Since November of 2003, our little group of volunteers have sent nearly 3400 boxes to these brave men and women.
Until they are all home.
Leslie (Halbower) Barrett, 
Great Bend Military Moms,
and American Legion Gift Fund,
