Group needs donations for ‘adopted' unit
By Sean Bowlin
If you’re stationed in Kuwait, its a safe bet you can’t get to Wal-Mart to buy personal hygiene items. And the military base exchange, or BX, might be located across the base.
So the Ladies Auxiliary of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7110 in New Braunfels have adopted the 59 soldiers of the 15th Finance Battalion from Ft. Hood. The 15th is deployed in Kuwait.
Army Lt. Col. Marlene Fey, the daughter of Betty Fey, senior vice president of the Ladies Auxiliary, is in the 15th Finance Battalion. Lt. Col. Fey’s father, Marvin, is VFW Post 7110’s quartermaster.
Janice Quent, president of the Ladies Auxiliary, hopes the citizens of New Braunfels will help send Lt. Col Fey and other soldiers a lot of stuff through the mail.
"We want to say, ‘We appreciate what you’re doing,’” Quent said.
Suggested items for the 44 men and 15 women support specialists include, but aren’t limited to: letters of appreciation or support, personal hygiene items, greeting cards for the soldiers to send to loved ones back home, snacksized bags of chips, nonmelting candy, cough drops, stationery, personal size packets of facial tissue, hp balm, eye drops, sample/travel sizes of hand lotion and shampoo, .chewing gum, sun screen, [ insect repellant, Kool-Aid • mixes, packets of instant cof
fee, peanut brittle, nonperishable snack foods (no home-baked goods), AA batteries, puzzles, blank cassette tapes, dice and other small lightweight items.
Quent also is interested in getting the names and addresses of other area mili-tary family members deployed in the Middle East.

Friesenhahn, a local attorney, radio personality and member of the Safe City Commission, said future programs could be taped elsewhere, depending upon the topic.
"We’ll sort of evolve the program,” he said.
Friesenhahn opened the program by talking of what the Safe City Commission is and what it does.
Appointed by the mayor, the commission oversees crime
prevention activities such as National Night Out against Crime, Operation Identification — a program to make personal property less valuable to thieves — window etching and Neighborhood Watch, among others.
The Safe City Commission meets the first Thursday of each month at the New Braunfels Police Department.
Overall, Johnson said, New Braunfels is a pretty safe community.
But people can go a long way toward making it safer, he said, by practicing commonsense crime prevention.
“People need to be a little more aware. Don’t leave anything of value — #ven childrens toys — in the front yard. Lock your doors,” Johnson said. “But call us. We’re here to serve the citizens and I don’t think you’ll find an officer who is upset because someone or something suspicious," Johnson said.
“Maybe we can get the word out to other auxiliaries and they could adopt a unit also,” she said.
Items can be brought to the kitchen area at the VFW Post Home at 600 Peace Ave. any Friday between 5 and 9 p.m.
Or citizens can call (830) 625-6143 to arrange for pickup or delivery.
