This month marks the second anniversary of fighting in Iraq. Day-to-day life in a war zone is staring to weight on troops, but a local soldier's father is trying to provide them with a few more comforts of home, and he needs your help.
You can drop off items at Newschannel 7 or at Michael Creel's work at ARINC off of Thomas Drive until the end of this month.
Here's a list of items the troops need and want:
Powdered laundry detergent
Boxes of tissues
Dried snack mixes
Presweetened drink mixes
Dried fruit and nuts
Toothpaste and toothbrushes
Letters from students
