This posting at the request of the Yelm Real Estate Network:


Col. Johnson of the Washington National Guard spoke at a recent meeting of the Yelm Real Estate Network regarding an opportunity to help the troops that are away from their family, friends and communities. We will be sending various items to our troops in the Iraq and Afghanistan areas and will be shipping donated items to the soldiers of the Washington National Guard and also one of the Stryker Brigades. Currently the Washington National Guard has 3 units in Iraq, Afghanistan and surrounding areas. Col. Johnson spoke of the benefits to the troops’ morale when they receive items from home (apparently Starbucks coffee is one of the great favorites!) and are pleased to see our donations and community support! We can make a difference! Together with the Family Services Unit, we will be sending the items listed below. We will be accepting donations until October 19th.
