Military Survivor Organization Wants Boots

By Associated Press | 

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- A group working on behalf of the families of soldiers is seeking military boots in any condition to represent fallen soldiers.

Each boot received will represent a fallen service member as part of a display that will be put together by volunteers, hopefully in time for "Gold Star Week," Oct. 27 to Nov. 1. That's when Fort Campbell hosts surviving family members for a series of events including the Hero and Remembrance Run, Walk or Roll event.

Survivor Outreach Services Director Suzy Yates told The Leaf-Chronicle donations of desert boots, jungle boots, cold-weather boots, jump boots from any era are welcome

Boots can be mailed into the Army Community Services SOS office located at 2703 Michigan Ave., Fort Campbell, Kentucky 42223 at Fort Campbell via FedEx or UPS.
