Geneva, Illinois School kids support our troops

The kids at our elementary schools in Geneva have made thousands of beautiful Holiday cards for our soldiers the past two years. These cards were mailed to dozens of military hospitals and other medical units in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait. This year, the Air Force Theater Hospital at Balad, Iraq honored them by flying flags in their honor.

Harrison Street School

Coultrap School

Mill Creek School

Each school received a flag along with a certificate and letter of appreciation from the Commanding officer of the hospital. The kid's enthusiasm, hard-work and compassion were wonderful, and it was nice to be able to show them how much their efforts were appreciated.

Here's a big thank you to all of the students, to the faculty and student-council advisors for helping our sick and injured soldiers know that no matter how far from home they might have been at Christmas, there were a lot of Americans who cared about them.
