Christmas greetings to vets and troops


Tonawanda News — “Sometimes, after Christmas, we get thank-you letters back from the troops,” said Major Martha Wheeler.

Those letters — and pictures of the troops in Afghanistan proudly displaying their cards — are on display at the Salvation Army.

One year a New York State trooper stationed in Afghanistan showed his unit’s appreciation by sending to the Salvation Army a U.S. flag they flew at Camp Marmal, Mazar-E-Sharif, on Christmas day.

This year’s cards will be on display today, the last day of an open house, at the Salvation Army, 50 Cottage St., from 4-6 p.m.
