DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. —More than 100 care packages meant for troops serving in Afghanistan are just sitting at a postal office in DeKalb County.
The packages were sent out months ago by the King’s Bridge Retirement Community Center on Briarcliff Drive. [The]… packages destined for the troops in Afghanistan were packed and sent out by the seniors for
Veterans Day more than three months ago, but only made it about a mile to the local post office.
World War II veteran and retired Brig. Gen. Harold Dye
says he put a lot of time into his note. “I’m at a loss for words in a sense. I can’t imagine me being at loss words,” said Dye.
A spokesperson for the United States Postal Service sent a statement, saying, “Due to a paperwork error by the Postal Service, Kingsbridge Retirement Center’s mailing destined for U.S. troops overseas was not processed in a timely manner. We sincerely apologize for this delay. These packages will be processed immediately and dispatched on tomorrow (Tuesday) morning.”
