Thank you so much for investing 34 Christmas Boxes in our Minnesota National Guard families this month. Like so many other states, our communities have been touched by the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Our customers donated another 30 Christmas Boxes and on distribution day my son, Chaplain (CPT) Buddy Winn, ministered to the Army and Air Guard families who came (see attached).
A very touching moment occurred at the end of the morning when a young Army LT came up to me saying that his company commander told him about Christmas Boxes for Minnesota Guard Families. He had just retuned from active duty, was unemployed and his wife was pregnant. Because all the Boxes had been distributed, I had to ask one of our workers to donate their box which I drove to his home. That was my Christmas.
