Student Nurses Association Drive to Support Our Troops – Thank you

The Student Nurses Association would like to extend a hearty thank you to the College community for the fantastic response to our “Beat the Baghdad Blahs” donation drive.  We collected over $1000 in cash donations as well as numerous boxes of food and sundry items to ship to our dedicated troops.

We are currently in the process of shipping items and hope to complete our project by late June or early July.  In an email to his father-in-law Jim Petrosino, Sgt. Shawn Saunders remarked, “everyone in the regiment looks forward to me cracking open the boxes to see what is inside.” He further commented that we “shoot water balloons from the gun hatch of our vehicles at delighted kids and adults.  They love it.” According to Saunders “… the squirt guns get used every day...with the daily temperature reaching 120 degrees…and the snacks are awesome.”

On behalf of the 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment and Sergeant Shawn Saunders, son-in-law of Jim and Bonnie Petrosino, we thank you.
