This week we delivered oversized Christmas/Holiday cards to our troops at the SD National Guard and Ellsworth Air Force Base. The cards were accepted by Adjutant General Major General Tim Reisch on behalf of the National Guard and by 28th Bomb Wing Commander, Colonel Kevin Kennedy on behalf of the Air Force. The cards were filled with expressions of gratitude from people across western SD.
This year we were also able to give 4,267 cards to the SD National Guard as a part of the Red Cross "Holiday Mail for Heroes" program. These adorable cards filled with good wishes and encouragement for our troops came from children and adults all over the United States.
