A Great Way to Show Them You Care

Okay, so a Seabee, a Marine, and a Soldier walk into an airport and what do they see?

Well, when they're my friends Cookie, Loren, and Leroy they see that Syracuse's Hancock International Airport is a busy transit area for servicepeople from several different area outfits, and they also see that this rather small airport's services close up around 2100 hours. That means troops in transit, who sometimes have long, even overnight, layovers don't have anywhere to get a cuppa or a donut.

That's where Cookie, Loren, and Leroy want to come in. They're asking for donations to open a serviceperson's hospitality room at Hancock. You can make a tax-deductible donation, under the auspices of the Marine Corps League, and keep these guys stocked up so they can take care of our guys and gals on their way to and from duty stations all over the world.

Here's the link to Cookie's post, with all the info you need to help brighten the journey for America's heroes.

I've worked with all three of them. They're standup guys and you can be sure your donation will be put to good use.
