Military Matters: Area book drive for troops

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Vance-Brooks Funeral Home in Columbus and Phenix City is making sure troops overseas have something productive to do during their down time.

They have started collecting new and used books to ship to soldiers around the world. Around 2,000 books have been donated so far.

Lance Brooks says Wi-Fi is not great for soldiers in outlying areas, so the books will come in handy.
