Love in a Box


Recommended Posts

While on rotation to south East Asia, I missed my first Christmas away from home. I was sitting on a grassy knoll over looking the ramp at NKP. I was thinking and praying about my family and friends back home. It was a tough morning. My AC, Skip Davenport, walk up behind me and gave me a Red Cross gift bag. It was filled with goodies (love) and a wonderful letter from a small elementary school in Texas. The letter thank me and wished me a Merry Christmas. It meant so much that I'll always cherish it.

Well, Clebe McClary, who was Ralph H. Johnson's platoon leader in a battle that won Ralph a CMH, ( the VA Hospital in Charleston is honored with his name) has started a group called "Love in a Box". All you have to do is is fill them with love and goodies and send it on to a warrior. You can order these boxes from the USPS for free by calling 1800-610-8734.

Please consider doing this. It meant so much for me back in the day.

By the way, Clebe lost his arm and an eye in that battle. Check out the LIAB FB page.
