Young wife starts adopt-a-soldier program

Adopt-a-soldier program
By: Heartland News

CARBONDALE, Ill. - Heather Torres, 20, said she wanted to start an adopt-a-soldier program because she was saddened to hear some soldiers in her husband's company never receive mail or care packages.
She's asking folks in the Heartland to adopt 150 soldiers serving in 572nd Engineer Battalion during their upcoming deployment to Iraq.
Torres hopes to find at least 150 people by October to send one care package and one letter to a soldier each month of their deployment.
To help out call Torres at 618-924-2142.
