Army thanks local helper

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, May 13, 2003

Gina Davis says she’s shy and not a leader.

The U.S. Army says she’s a true friend and a life saver.

Maj. Jeffrey D. Watters, 1st Brigade chaplain in Afghanistan, said Davis has bombarded soldiers with care packages and good wishes since January.

“Almost every day we receive a package that has a return address of Gina Davis,” Watters said in a recent letter to Davis. “It is good to know that folks like yourself have not forgotten about those serving in this dangerous and foreign land, especially now.”

Tuesday, Davis received a formal Army thank-you at the Frankfort U.S. Army Recruiting Station. Capt. Marc Edquid, commander of the Lexington U.S. Army Recruiting Co., presented Davis an award and mementos from members of Task Force Devil deployed in Afghanistan. Edquid made the presentations on behalf of the still-absent members of the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division.
