Sponsors sought to support troops


The Hood County News troops support program includes the names of 15 service personnel with ties to Hood County. The “adopted” military personnel in the Hood County News troops program are very appreciative of the acts of kindness coming from our community.

Many of the “adopted” troops routinely share their Hood County care packages with their peers. The Post Office offers a military flat-rate box at a lower cost than regular flat-rate packages.

To add someone’s name to the list, or to become a sponsor, call Megan at 817-573-7066.
