Samuel Young Legion Post 620

Hello all!

Here’s another loud thank you. This one goes to Lisa Hom and Girl Scout troops: 1182, 1185, 1202, and 1209. These Scouts dropped off food stuff for the Love Kitchen at St. Peter’s Church in the Square. We’ll get the goodies there. I understand that all these scout troops come from P.S. 71. Again, a big hoorah to all.

When you are sending out your holiday cards, address one to: A Recovering American Soldier, % Walter Reed Medical Center, 6900 Georgia Avenue N.W., Washington, D.C. 20307.

One of the troops will get this card from you and it will mean a lot because you cared to remember. Thanks.

Short column this week. Next week I’ll have some interesting stuff to tell you.

Trivia Time!!
