Community falls in to support one of its own

While the Army and VA are helping the family, their church family in Freeport also wants to assist Dan, Juanita, and their four children who are ages 1 through 7 years.

On Feb. 16, a benefit car wash and bake sale will be held at the BP station in Freeport at the southwest corner of U.S. Highway 331 South and State Road 20 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

"The public is invited to come out and get your car washed and buy some goodies to help support this courageous young soldier and his family," said Sally Orlosky, a member of their congregation at Christ the King Catholic Church, who is sponsoring the benefit.



Those unable to attend the Feb. 16 benefit may mail donations to:

Dan & Juanita Carlton
