Guard Unit Needs Shipping Funds

The Florida National Guard's 2nd Battalion, 116th Artillery, headquartered in Lakeland, has plenty of packages and gifts for its 30 members in Iraq this season.

But it doesn't have the money to send them all.

The unit has 30 soldiers stationed in Iraq until at least the end of February. Officers with the headquarters said they try to ship items to them at least once a month. With Christmas approaching, it is even more important to get the packages mailed.

If you would like to contribute a small amount to help ship the items, you can bring a donation to the armory at 4140 Drane Field Road.

If you wish to send a check, make it payable to "Soldier Support Fund" and mail to Soldier Support Fund, 2/116th Field Artillery, 4140 Drane Field, Lakeland, FL 33811-1269. For more information contact Capt. Anthony Varner, the company commander, or Maj. Marty Nichols, Brigade liaison, at 648-3234.Guard Unit Needs Shipping Funds | theledger.com
