But he did not forget his “brothers in arms.” Norton advertised a need for care packages for those he served with for Christmas and hearts were opened in a huge way.

When he came home from college, he found so many donations that they filled the living room of his home in Mott. Most came with “thank you” notes for his service, and for remembering those still serving from anonymous donors. Locally, the Mott/Regent Elementary school children made it their project to collect dollars in the amount of $240 dollars to purchase needed items for the Care Packages. Killian was overwhelmed and grateful seeing, what totaled to 30 boxes full of wonderful items for our soldiers.

To Killian, who served, I wish to add my thoughts: “Better than honor and glory, and History’s iron pen, Was the thought of duty done and the love of his fellow-men”, because in this effort, Killian you have continued to serve your country. I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks.
