Boy Scout troops # 236 & 961 along with Girl Scout troops # 74, 75, 76 & 406 met at USO Rome on December 5 with their donations of baked goodies, holiday decorations, and various other items in order to stuff care packages to send to deployed troops in Iraq & Afghanistan for the holidays. This fun day of volunteer service produced 45 USO “Rome away from home” care bags which were shipped through the APO to USO centers in these areas as well as individually named deployed troops. The scouts also started a new USO Rome tradition of putting up the center’s Christmas Tree and providing much USO holiday cheer![gallery columns=“2”]
Their journey is everyone's responsibility. From the moment they enlist, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, they can rely on your support.
