Several club ambassadors submitted ways they support our military... this month we will share some of those ways!
Last year, the Linn Creek Corvette Association chose the “Christmas Stockings for Soldiers” to support with proceeds from our annual Corvette Meet and Greet. We sent Christmas stockings to 450 of our service men and women serving in Afghanistan (101st Airborne Spartans!); they arrived on Christmas Eve 2010. For many of these fine brave soldiers, that was the only Christmas item they received.
We were invited to the Change of Command for LTC James Sisemore at Ft. Campbell, KY this past June 2011. He and his troopers had returned to Ft. Campbell from Afghanistan in late April – early May, and he was going on to War College at Ft. Leavenworth, KS.
Our 4th Annual Corvette Meet and Greet was held 9/24/2011, and the commanding Officer of these brave soldiers, LTC James Sisemore and his family attended our event, and gave a rousing speech and “thank you” to our over 100 cars in attendance. Needless to say, we will be supporting this again at Christmas time…
