A Central Oregon group hopes to make a big difference in the lives of soldiers serving oreveases in the military. 

 

Diane Brock of Bend has a son in the military and helped start "Caring For Troops" about 10 years ago.
 

They send care packages filled with things like beef jerkey, other goodies and personal items.  It helps loved ones take some positive action, while making a big difference to these men and women who are so far from home. 

 "WE WANT THEM TO KNOW THAT THEY AREN'T FORGOTTEN - THAT WE APPRECIATE THE SACRIFICE THEY DO FOR OUR FREEDOM."


Brock says the soldiers who get the special care packages don't have to be from central oregon - just have a local connection of some sort.  She says they need more people to sign up for this important morale boosting service.
