Rosemary Fleck, Bismarck

(Nominated by Doris Weiss)
State Capitol Building in Bismarck

This woman has single handedly been sending packages to our troops with individual personal sized items along with cards and letters.  She raises money for postage and supplies, much of which she supplies herself.  Her love and devotion for our troops is awe inspiring.  During the recent flood in ND – many of the items were destroyed.  I know she will rally and re-supply so she can continue to show love and support to our troops.  Her speeches bring one to tears as she shares the love and support the troops send back by way of letters of encouragement and cards.  The soldiers share the items with others if they are short and also the cards/letters.  She is at least 60+ years old and this is her life, letting our troops know that are loved, appreciated and supported.
