To the editor:

On behalf of the American Legion Post 283 Honor Guard, I would like to thank all who donated to the recent Gifts for Yanks program.

Honor Guard members manned the streets of Old Pickerington to collect donations toward the purchase of Christmas gifts for those veterans confined to Ohio’s Veterans Administration hospitals, mental health facilities and the Ohio Veterans Home.

Your tax-deductible donation, 100 percent of which is used toward the purchase of gifts, will bring a smile to the face of these men and women who have given much and asked for little other than perhaps to be remembered for their service to country. Thank you.

Terry Earhart
