Gateway Cares About Our Troops

We have adopted a unit of soldiers! We’ve heard back from our previous soldiers who have since rotated home and they’re very grateful for our letters and packages. We are always looking for more soldiers to adopt. We know some of you have immediate family members fighting overseas, we would love to adopt them!
