Operation DVD

September 27, 2006

Albany - Troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan don't have a lot of downtime. When they do,  there are very few activities for them. One thing most enjoy is watching movies, but there aren't many to choose from.

A new project called operation DVD is designed to gather used and new DVD's and CD's to send to troops overseas. The Albany Young Marines are collecting the music and movies. Commanding officer Nathaniel Lowman says they will help to get service members minds off of combat... at least for a few moments. He says, "The program is to send them DVDs so they can have something to do to take their minds off of life that's going on over there."

Operation DVD is a year-long project with hopes of collecting one million DVD's from around Southwest Georgia. If you would like to have a collection box placed at your business, contact the Young Marines at 639-5285.
