East Ridge Middle to send more than 1,100 holiday cards, letters to deployed troops

.   .  

East Ridge Middle School will send more than 1,100 letters and cards to deployed military personnel this holiday season.

The school has adopted two ships:

  • The USS Arlington, which is an amphibious transport dock carrying 360 U.S. Navy sailors and 699 members of the U.S. Marine Corps.
  • The USS Blue Ridge, a command ship carrying 1,300 sailors with command staff aboard.

More than 1,100 students and staff members signed cards and wrote letters of encouragement.

Thank you, East Ridge Middle, for supporting our troops who are away from family and friends during the holidays.
