  •   Cell Phones for Soldiers Recycling Program
    Please send your old/used cell phone to Joanne Delles, Bldg 400A. FREE calling cards are being sent to our adopted platoon and to BNL family members. Each individual has been receiving calling cards with 60 free minutes. The old/used cell phones are recycled and funds used towards the calling cards.  Learn more about this program
  • Passing the Hat for the Troops!  A group in Portsmouth, NH does this and we thought it would be nice for us to do for the platoon we are supporting. The idea is to knit or crochet helmet liners using wool because it is warmer, safer and less flammable. Dark colors like green, brown, navy are good so that the caps blend in with uniforms and dark clothing.  If you know how to knit or crochet and would like to make a helmet liner to donate to our platoon, click here for instructions.
