Sylvester- As Georgia National Guard troops arrive in the Middle East this week, they're on the minds of many of us here in Southwest Georgia, including some high school students who may one day join the military.

Worth County ROTC student Corey Cook helped organize a school drive to collect items to send to the soldiers.

Students started collecting these boxes full of personal items and snacks in February. The national guard picked them up today and will get them to the men and women of the 48th Brigade.

"I believe it improves the morale of the soldiers quite well," Cook said.

The Worth County High School ROTC will also collect items next school year and for as long as those soldiers are overseas.
