600 Gifts for 600 Soldiers

Soldiers' Angel Jeanne Graeser teamed up with American Legion Post 77 in Waveland, MS to box up hundreds of Christmas gifts and goodies for Mississippi troops.

"600 gifts for 600 soldiers," Graeser said. "Today we boxed up hot chocolate mugs, hot apple cider , candies, Christmas candies, Christmas gifts, scarves that people have knitted. These guys are over there without their families, and I feel that this is the least we can do to make Christmas more pleasant for them."

The packages will be shipped to members of the 155th Calvary Regiment in Iraq. The veterans from post 77 know how important it is for a soldier to receive letters and gifts from home.

Well done Jeanne and AL Post 77!!
