Pilots Help Out Troops Overseas
The St. Augustine Airport Pilots Association is sending a bit of home to U.S. troops stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. The pilots group is taking $10 donations that will allow it to fill packages with snacks, toiletries, lip balm, eye drops and DVDs for soldiers fighting in those countries. "I think everybody should say thank you to our troops and this is a perfect way to do it," association member Bill Pacetti told the St. Augustine Record. Donations have come in from as far away as California and checks, made out to SAPA U.S. Troop Care Package, can be sent to 147 San Marco Ave., St. Augustine, FL 32084.
