Batteries For Troops

July 22, 2010 Updated Dec 19, 2005 at 1:38 PM EDT

American Legion Post 758 is finding a big way to help troops overseas, by supplying some small items.

The post collected hundreds of double-A batteries to send to servicemen in Iraq.They want to make sure the troops can enjoy their downtime by listening to fully powered cd and mp3 players. It's all an effort to show the post's support for those who are making sacrifices far from home.

Post 758 also held a pancake breakfast buffet this morning.Discounted tickets for the buffet were given to those who brought batteries.
