Cub Scouts honor soldiers with care package project

By Jim Six

WASHINGTON TWP. When the members of Cub Scout Pack 81 decided to send packages to GIs serving in Iraq, they went all out even soliciting Halloween candy from young trick-or-treaters.

Den Leader Peter Giovetis said his den started with the notion of putting together packages for members of the 5th Squad, 117th Cavalry, an Army National Guard unit headquartered in Vineland.

The project grew into a pack-wide operation, and now the packages will be heading to the war zone.
