Imagine going months and months without the comforts of home including your favorite food or treats. That’s one of the many things our troops endure. But a local non-profit group tries to change all that. Diane Brock, who co-founded the non-profit organization along with Dan Hulbert, sends care packages to local men and women who have been deployed. "When we first went into Iraq, “Operation Enduring Freedom;” the troops were moving so fast that the logistics couldn't keep up with them. So there was a definite need. Now, sometimes it's about need if they're in a remote area and sometimes it's about the importance of the message and we know that nothing goes to waste!" The packages include all kinds of moral boosters and treats, like jerkey, cookies and hard candy. If you'd like to either help with donations or sign up someone you know, just go to the website:  www.caringfortroops.com. Brock says the soldier doesn't have to be from the area; just a have a local tie like family or friends in Central Oregon.
