Soldiers in Afghanistan get some welcomed packages from home

Christmas may be over, but a package from home is always a welcome sight for troops serving overseas. Soldiers in Afghanistan were happily surprised by the boxes stuffed with goodies such as candy, magazines and homemade cards. Some much needed toiletries were also appreciated. SSG. Dale Race said, “Very nice to get packages from home, even from people you don't know. It's very nice to get packages home.” WWAY, along with the Big Talker FM and Step Up for Soldiers, partnered up to send the packages over seas this year. Approximately 1,100 packages have been sent to soldiers over the last two years.
