Due to a marked decline in the number troops receiving services from Friends of Nevada County Military, the organization has suspended it's primary operation of sending support packages to those deployed to combat zones. Instead, the American Legion Auxiliary, Frank Galindo Post 180, has agreed with Friends to ship support packages instead.

Anyone in Nevada County with connection to a service man or women who wishes they receive support packages may contact Julie Slater at julieslater47@yahoo.com.

Friends will maintain it's organizational and financial structures ready to resume operations should the need arise. Donations will continue to be accepted but not solicited. Should the need for services not arise in the forseeable future, remaing monies will be used to fund a scholarship program for local veterans.

Friends of Nevada County Military may be contacted by US Mail at P.O. Box 2262, Nevada City, CA 95959 and by e-mail at friends@fncm.org.
