More than 150 members of the Kentucky National Guard's 206th Engineer Battalion were deployed to the Middle East last year. This is your chance to send them a piece of home to help raise morale.

Many Kentucky National Guard's 206th Engineer Battalion soldiers were sent on a year-long deployment in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. They're missing their family members, friends and community. They're missing home. And, they'll be missing birthdays, anniversaries and holidays. This is a small, but wonderful way to say thank you to men and women out there who are protecting our freedom.
