Pryor Thanks Arkansas Troops Serving in Afghanistan


Location: Washington, DC

In order to recognize the service and sacrifice of our troops, U.S. Senator Mark Pryor today announced that he and his office will send care packages to Arkansas troops stationed in Afghanistan. There are currently 167 Arkansas soldiers serving with the 1039th Engineer Company and the 39th Brigade Special Troops Battalion in Afghanistan.

"Arkansas troops lay their lives on the line every day to keep our nation safe," Pryor said. "These care packages are a small way we can show our gratitude and let our troops know that there's a community of Arkansans supporting their work and anxiously awaiting their safe return."

The care packages will include a DVD video message from Pryor, cards from Arkansans, and bags of Juanita's Candy Kitchen Peanut Brittle of Arkadelphia to give service members a touch of home. Arkansans interested in participating may download postcards from Pryor's website, write a message, and send them to Pryor's Washington D.C. office at 255 Dirksen Senate Office Building, Washington D.C. 20510. The packages will be mailed on Friday, March 22nd.
