‘This event is invaluable to the women involved’

They will put the finishing touches on the event on Saturday when they gather to pack 1,000 boxes, names and addresses of deployed soldiers supplied by Soldier’s Angels, a volunteer-operated clearinghouse of outreach to deployed troops which has assisted Semper Fi Sisters the past three years.

And these Sisters will be putting faces and voices and in some cases antics to names and handles on the internet, tightening the ties that bind them as war binds their loved ones.

“The community can have pride in knowing they are opening their arms to us and in doing so they are honoring our soldiers and they are honoring us, too,” Dorman said. “With all the selfishness out there today, these young people volunteer to serve their country. It is amazing.” 

 

If you would like to donate an item or money for shipping to the Semper Fi Sisters’ effort to pack 1,000 “Boxes of Love” to troops overseas, please visit www.semperfisisters.com.
