American Legion Post 1087 supports soldiers overseas
Jina Papadoniou/Herald
Members of the American Legion Cathedral Post 1087 in West Hempstead and Boy Scout Troop 93 in Franklin Square gathered last week to prepare care packages to be sent to troops in Afghanistan.

On July 5 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., Boy Scouts and veterans of the American Legion Cathedral Post 1087 in West Hempstead helped in assorting and preparing care packages to be sent to troops in Afghanistan. Members from Boy Scout Troop 93 in Franklin Square also assisted.

Nearly 30 packages were prepared, all of which will go to the Chinook Helicopter Unit in Afghanistan. Scout Michael Arevalo, of Troop 93, has been working on this project toward his Eagle Scout honor for more than six months.
