More than 320 families in the Valley won't be together this Christmas. That's because they have a family member serving in the military. But there is a way you can show your support. Local businesses and families are asked to display a blue candle in their window until the troops come. Blue is one of the colors representing Company C. Local resident Colleen Mulleen is working with local businesses to purchase the candles and get the word out.
Mulleen says, "They're not only gone at Christmas, but they're gone during their children's birthdays, soccer games, and all holidays. That's a sacrifice they're making on our behalf."
If you're interested in displaying a blue candle in your home or business call (540) 249-9424.
