Care packages go overseas

Zyk Post 272 - Butternut, WI

All Legion posts are invited to share supplies from home that will make life on deployment brighter. Lists of recommended supplies are available from troop commanders or chaplains. Our local communities donated drink mixes, books, snacks, health-care supplies - and enough monetary donations to mail the packages.
