High Energy, Big Smiles, and 14,000 packages for Troops Abroad
Marine Corps Veteran Brock Carlson knows what it means for an American serviceman or woman to receive a USO care package when they can’t make it home for the holidays.
“While I was serving overseas, I received a kit from home,” said Carlson, an HR advisor for FedEx Express. “Getting one meant the world to me. It was something from home, something that we couldn’t get while we were over there. It made our day, it made our week, it made our month. Knowing that somebody out there cared really kept us going with our morale and our spirit.”
This holiday season, over 300 FedEx team members, made up of veterans, military family members, and others looking to support U.S. troops, packed more than 14,000 “Holiday for Heroes” packages for servicemen and women deployed in Southwest Asia, the Pacific and Europe.
