  • PHOTO: Sending packages to Iraq

    “It just felt like God was sending me this way,”  said Virginia Smith of Taylorsville.  “Because, it’s all working out.” Smith prepared packages for the soldiers of her son-in-laws Army Unit out of Fort Hood, now serving in Iraq.  She was able to do this with money raised through; her church, All Saint’s Catholic, her pinochle club and her family and friends. Boxes filled with some necessities to make soldiers lives a bit easier, while hopefully making them feel a bit closer to home were to be sent out Thursday, September 4, to Iraq.
