Radio show host collecting holiday messages for members of the North Dakota National Guard – Jamestown Sun
Kyle Murphy, host of KSJB Radio’s “Murphy in the Morning” morning show, wants to send messages of gratitude to members of the North Dakota National Guard who can’t be home for Christmas.
Murphy came up with the idea of asking people to write Christmas greetings, wishes or thanks to soldiers and airmen of the North Dakota National Guard who won’t be home over the holidays to come to their senses. .
“There are currently nearly 500 North Dakota Guardsmen (soldiers and airmen) deployed overseas and in the United States,” said Bill Prokopyk, public information officer for the North Dakota National Guard.
A Guardsman recruiter Murphy spoke with about the idea said he would make sure the messages get out to members of the North Dakota National Guard, Murphy said.
Those wishing to participate may send messages or letters to members of the guard at Murphy at [email protected] or mail them to care of KSJB Radio, 2400 8th Ave. SW, Buffalo Mall, Suite D-1, Jamestown, ND 58401 All emails containing messages sent to Murphy will be printed and all messages collected will be delivered to the recruiter’s office for delivery to troops. The deadline for sending the messages to Murphy is December 17.
Children from Lincoln Elementary School should participate in the activity, according to Sherry Schmidt, Principal of Lincoln Elementary School. December 7 is National Letter Writing Day and children will write messages to Guard soldiers on that day, she said.
