Pay It Forward: Operation Show Our Love
"They are over there getting shot at and their days don't end and to take their mind off of it for just one moment to ease... it is indescribable," exclaims Yvonne Horne whose son is currently overseas.
Welcome to Operation: Show our love. The mission. To send care packages to our troops.
"They are doing a lot for us and we owe them a lot more than we can ever repay them and i just started by saying thank you and sending packages. So we just pretty much started getting the community involved and everyone donates, everyone helps packs, everyone helps with the money with shipping and we have sent about 135 thousand pounds to 28 different foreign countries," tells Cindy Millikin the Founder of Operation: Show Our Love.
Cindy's operation has continued to grow and now multiple organizations have joined in the efforts with donations including the Brookville VFW helping with shipping.
"We are glad to do because she has done a tremendous job supporting our troops," says Paul Griffith with the Brookville Memorial VFW.
During this operation... Some help knowing the importance of one of these packages.
"I can't speak for them only for myself if it made me feel that good I can only imagine what they feel like as they are getting fired at everyday," tells Lambert Tynes who helps with the Operation and is also Cindy's husband.
"It just changes your whole outlook and reminds you there are people back home who think about you," quotes Griffith from the VFW.
It's a full time job but it is a task that our soldiers need done and appreciate
"They cannot thank us enough they try to put into words but they cant what this means to them and so we know in our hearts we know," says Millikin.
