ADENA – SPC. Laurie Wentworth shown above with CW4 Rob McClure, Parkersburg, W.Va., lives in Adena and is stationed in FOB Salerno, Afghanistan.

Darrin Young owner of D and E Electric, sent “army green” D & E t-shirts to her unit for Christmas. Wentworth in return, sent home these pictures of the unit (C Co. 2/104, National Guard, out of Parkersburg, W.Va.) pictured left, in the t-shirts and Santa Hats, thanking Darrin and his wife Ericka for their support. The pictures are a small reminder of how important it is to support our local “heroes” serving over seas, during the holidays and every day. It is a difficult time for all of them and they make the best of it defending our freedoms. They put aside their feelings, leave their families, miss holidays, birthdays and births of younger family members protecting something that we sometimes take for granted and is overlooked. Put “Support our Troops” number one on your New Years resolution list this year. Photos provided
