Caring about military personnel

We do not hear enough about the extraordinary people that work to serve this nation, in, out of, and for our military. Caring About Military Personnel (CAMP) is one of those organizations that does not get enough recognition they have earned. Since their beginning in 2004, they have worked tirelessly to provide care packages to active duty military personnel stationed in the Middle East. On Sunday, December 20, CAMP held its sixth annual Holiday of Honor at the Avalon Manor in Hobart, Indiana; a military appreciation celebration, honoring military personnel, past and present.

As a veteran and a member of veterans’ services organizations, I understand first-hand the importance of ensuring the morale of the men and women of our armed forces. CAMP is an organization that ships to 30 addresses overseas every month. There are a number of things that can be done to help. If you would like to know more, please check out a CAMP meeting. Meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m. unless otherwise notified. Meetings are held at 311 S 300 W, Valparaiso, IN 36385. ALL are invited to attend and are welcome. Just bring yourself and the willingness to support the troops!
