Radio stations Mix 103.1 and Wave 102 joined T-Mobile to sponsor a "Billboard of Cheer" at the Choctaw Plaza in Ft. Walton Beach. Now through Friday, anyone can drop by and write an uplifting message to the troops on the banner.
On November 29, the “Billboard of Cheer” will go up on Lewis Turner Blvd. near Eglin Air Force Base. Then, it will be shipped to the troops in Iraq.
Local air force members appreciate the support. If you miss the chance to sign the billboard at Choctaw Plaza, don't worry. It will move to Mariner Plaza on Eglin Parkway next week.
