Radio show host collecting holiday messages for members of the North Dakota National Guard
Kyle Murphy, host of KSJB Radio’s “Murphy in the Morning” morning show, wishes to send messages of gratitude to members of the North Dakota National Guard who cannot be home for Christmas.
Murphy came up with the idea of asking people to write Christmas greetings, wishes or thanks to the soldiers and airmen of the North Dakota National Guard who will not be home for the holidays to come to their senses. .
“There are currently nearly 500 North Dakota Guardsmen (Soldiers and Airmen) mobilized overseas and in the United States,” said Bill Prokopyk, chief information officer for the North Dakota National Guard.
A guard recruiter Murphy spoke with about the idea said he would ensure the messages were passed on to members of the North Dakota National Guard, Murphy said.
Those interested in participating can send messages or letters to members of the guard at Murphy at [email protected] or send them to him at KSJB Radio Care, 2400 8th Ave. SW, Buffalo Mall, Suite D-1, Jamestown, ND 58401 All emails containing messages sent to Murphy will be printed and all collected messages will be delivered to the recruiter’s office for delivery to the troops. The deadline for sending messages to Murphy is December 17th.
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 this day, she said.
