Kentwood Public School students braved the cold wintry blast this past Monday as they gathered together to make care packages for our troops. This tradition started because of one of East Kentwood's own, Navy Seal David Warsen. After graduation, he enlisted in March of 2009 and was transferred to California to join a West Coast Seals team in October of 2010. Two months after arriving he joined the conflict in Afghanistan. The East Kentwood graduate died in that conflict in 2012 when his black-hawk helicopter went down. For the past three years, students have kept Warsen's memory and service to our country alive as they build care packages for our troops. There were 153 care packages created in 4 hours on Monday. Some of the items collected by students for these care packages were wool socks, blankets, baked goods, iTune gift cards, candy and Buffalo Wild Wings sauces. What a great way to celebrate one of East Kentwood's own and all our veterans this November. Thanks to all the East Kentwood students for showing their hearts and Falcon Pride.
