Mail for Our Military Praises Local College

Editor, News-Register:

As we prepare for the upcoming Christmas mail campaign, Mail for Our Military would like to extend special thanks to West Virginia Northern Community College in Wheeling, which participated in the most recent campaign. Led by Shannon Payton and Ida Williams, they were again one of the very top colleges nationally.

Mail is received from all across the nation, mixed thoroughly before being divided into hundreds of packages, both large and small, then sent to military units across the U.S. and around the world.

As the continuation of the Vietnam Mail Call project, which was launched in 1965, this mail has been bringing smiles to our men and women in uniform for almost a half-century.

Anyone who would like to know how to join the Mail for Our Military campaign can receive complete information and instructions by sending their name and mailing address to P.O. Box 100, New Madrid, MO 63869 (time is of the essence). The troops will thank you, and so do we.
