MANSFIELD, Pa. – The Mansfield University Student Veterans Organization (MUSVO) organized a care package drive for the local National Guard unit from Wellsboro currently serving abroad in Poland.
The National Guard unit includes three Mansfield University employees in Jason Welch, Rusty Wood, and Ben Vanloon. The unit has been on rotation in Poland since the spring of 2019.
MUSVO collected donations from nearly a dozen locations in the area and sent 14 boxes of snacks, personal care products, and Mansfield gear to the unit. The effort was led by MUSVO President Emily Davidson and Vice President Andrew Whitehead with assistance from other members of the student veteran group and Mansfield University employees.
The unit is scheduled to return to the U.S. in early 2020.
