The Northeast Georgia chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America is initiating a support group called Operation Patriot’s Call for the families of the U.S. Army troops in Charlie Company who will be deployed to Afghanistan in the spring.
Leaders of Operation Patriot’s Call aim to host a Christmas party on Dec. 7 for the families of Charlie Company troops. Approximately 250 people are expected to attend the event where food will be served and toys given to the families. The Vietnam veterans are trying to raise about $3,500 to fund the event.
If you would like to donate, please mail a check to Operation Patriot’s Call, P.O. Box 7264, Gainesville, Ga. 30504.
For more information or to volunteer, please call Ron Kellner at 770-534-2509 or Dave Dellinger at 770-718-7676.
