Whitehall Elementary School Project – We Are With You All The
The students of Whitehall Elementary School, in Bowie, Maryland, wanted to
do something for the U.S. Troops who were away from home and loved ones
and to show them that they were not forgotten. One of the teachers
contacted the Post's American Legion Auxiliary who teamed up with the
Post's American Legion Riders to foster and support these students.
The Unit that they chose to support is the 629th Platoon of the
Pikesville Armory, US Army Reserve of Baltimore County, Maryland, that is
responsible for the security, safety, and welfare of detainees at
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. So far, the project has resulted in sending 1 box
of 58 pounds of Halloween goodies and now 14 boxes of Christmas cheer to
these service men and women.
