Some Eastern Kentuckians are trying to make the holidays a little better for some soldiers serving overseas. A golf tournament hosted Saturday morning at Hazard Country Club helped raise money to send care packages.
Family and friends of National Guard Soldier Bruce Fields say a lot of families in Eastern Kentucky can't always afford to send their loved ones supplies. They say with support from the community, they want to help the ones that can't and remind the soldiers how much they're missed.
Betty Fields, Bruce Fields mother says, “I’m very proud of my son and he makes a big sacrifice and I miss him and it breaks my heart that he's away from his daughter while she's growing up.”
