Veterans and Students Fulfill Christmas Wish Lists

Posted: Updated:

The veterans at Sims Veterans' Nursing Home will have a very special Christmas this year.

Volunteers at American Legion Post 356 in Lynn Haven teamed up with the students at Merritt Brown Middle School to fulfill each veteran's entire Christmas list.

Thursday morning, volunteers and teachers loaded up vans with more than 125 gifts for the veterans.

"It does our hearts good that middle school students would go out of their way to help Veterans who can't go out and shop for Christmas gifts. It does our heart very proud," said Charles Johann, the Post's Commander.

The American Legion Post 356 has provided gifts for the veterans since Sims Veterans' Nursing Home opened in 2003. The students at Merritt Brown started helping last Christmas.
