Carlye Rice, a junior at Central Kitsap High School, doesnt agree with President George W. Bushs foreign policy, but she does support the American troops abroad. Rice was one of about 1,500 students in Kitsap County who took the time in the last few weeks to write a note of encouragement to servicemen and women who are fighting the war on terror.
The notes are being coordinated by Bobbie Bryan, a 12-year Bremerton resident. Brown had been to several schools in Bremerton and Central Kitsap collecting the notes. Next week, the notes will be sent to the USO in Cincinnati. The USO will then send the notes to the service members.
Bryan, whose husband was in the U.S. Air Force, said she coordinated the project because she knows what it feels like to have a family member away from home.
They have to know we support them, she said.
At CKHS in particular, Bryan said the student participation level was wonderful.
Rice also was one of the students at CKHS who were manning a booth
