Project Mail Call
Kudos to Mary and Ed Ettel of Mt. Bethel Church in Marietta! They've already sent over 8,000 packages to our servicemen and women in overseas remote outposts for many years. I am privileged to be a part of East Cobb Civitans who routinely pack boxes with their specific needs of each outpost in mind. We have granted requests for food stuffs, personal care items, blankets, socks, and pretty much anything they might need. The troops really like chocolate candy, although we can only send during certain times of the year due to climate. Fulfilling their requests is something that is taken seriously. I remember one time when a serviceman from Texas wanted a particular type of hot sauce, and the Ettels made sure that his request was in the box--made me cry! At this packing, we sent Girl Scout cookies as a little "taste of home"! It is one of the most rewarding experiences I am privileged to be a part of.
