'Gratitude for the Guard' Collecting Thank Yous for Local Veterans

By Sam Miller
A drive to collect thank you cards and letters to area members of the Pennsylvania National Guard is underway. Congressman Matt Cartwright announced the “Gratitude for the Guard” program this week. Northeastern Pennsylvanians of all ages are encouraged to participate by dropping off or mailing cards to Rep. Cartwright’s Scranton district office. These cards will be collected and distributed to local Guard members throughout the 8th District, which includes Wayne and Pike Counties. The deadline to submit is April 8th.
