The soldiers are on their latest deployment to Iraqi and Kuwait. Coming home is a joyous occasion. It can also be a time of great stress and anxiety as the soldiers move from combat to the home front. Rotating out of combat poses it's own special circumstances and needs, but adding all of the other problems that were once distant, like finances and family obligations can often times be overwhelming.
There are several ways you can get involved in our mission of support, whether its here in Chicago or at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky:

Campbell, KY where we participate in ceremonies honoring the service and accomplishments of the troops, attend memorial services honoring fallen warriors and otherwise visit with the soldiers and their commanders to convey the support and encouragement of the people of Chicago for the 502nd.
