American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON, Feb. 5, 2008 Hundreds of volunteers across the country will make sure troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan feel loved on Valentine’s Day.
Project Prayer Flag, a California based troop-support group, will host four packing parties Feb. 9 to put together “Patriot Packs.” Two will take place in the group’s home state, a third will be in Hawaii, and the fourth in Wisconsin.
Patriot Packs contain cloth American flags and now include handmade valentines.
“We are excited to see volunteers from Hawaii, California and Wisconsin simultaneously working together for the first time to help our troops,” said Tina Mueller, Project Prayer Flag’s new Hawaii director. “We encourage everyone in Hawaii, the Southern California communities and Wisconsin to come out to serve our troops.”
Project Prayer Flag is a supporter of America Supports You, a Defense Department program connecting citizens and companies with servicemembers and their families serving at home and abroad.
