American Legion Post 1799, of the greater Haymarket-Gainesville community, again this year sent some comforts of home to the U.S. Air Force 430th Expeditionary Electronic Combat Squadron (430th EECS), based in Kandahar, Afghanistan.

The partnership, established in November of 2018 by Post member Robert Wyman, U.S. Army retired, provides books, magazines and personal items to service members deployed as part of Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. The most recently sent materials arrived in Kandahar on Christmas Eve.
