For the second year, the Blinn College Dental Hygiene program is sending care packages to troops serving in Iraq. Dental hygiene students collected donated items from Blinn employees and clubs. Today they packed the items for mailing.

They should arrive in December for the 36th Sustainment Brigade. Texas National Guard’s 36th Infantry Division provides soldiers all over southern Iraq with the supplies and materials necessary to perform their mission. The 36th Sustainment Brigade is responsible for tracking assets on the ground as soldiers and equipment move out of Iraq. The brigade handles items such as food, water, fuel, ammo and barrier material, and is responsible for setting up convoys and making sure the convoys get to their assigned location in a timely manner. The brigade deployed Aug. 15 for 12 months stationed in Tallil.
