REED CITY — Military personnel stationed overseas miss out on many of the comforts of home. One of those simple things taken for granted, is the ability to just relax and read a good book. Many times these soldiers are not near any place to buy a book because they are restricted in their travels. One program has brought this luxury reading again to those soldiers.
Storm Williams of North Carolina had many high school friends that were deployed overseas during the gulf war. Seeing that his closet was overflowing with unused paperback books, he decided that instead of selling them, he would fill a box and ship one to each of them. He quickly ran out of books, but was left with many addresses of servicemen.
