MILWAUKEE (WITI) — It’s been nearly 60 years since Bill Murgas served in the military, but he still remembers the impact of a piece of mail.
“It reminds me of my own service and what I did during the service,” said Murgas.
Murgas and his fellow American Red Cross volunteers are sorting through 15,000 cards collected for our military and veterans.
“I think it’s great because we didn’t have such a thing when I was in, people didn’t have much regard for the military then,” said Murgas.
The Holiday Mail for Heroes will be delivered to hometown veterans and shipped to troops serving across the country and overseas. This campaign empowers the community to send cards of thanks and support for their sacrifices.
