Wednesday on Newsline 9 at 10: Warrior Book Project
MERRILL (WAOW) -- Military members stationed in the Middle East get some new focus thanks to a local woman. Deborah Tidwell, a librarian in Merrill, sends books to seven units as part of the Warrior Book Project. Tidwell started the project after her son Aaron, a Marine stationed in Afghanistan, requested books for his comrades to help relieve stress.
"For young men and young women deployed overseas right now, that's a way that they can relax from the environment that they're in because a lot of them are in really hostile and dangerous environments," Tidwell said.
