    How AWESOME!! Thank you Pantry Inc! Our troops deserve so much for all they do for us. God Bless them all!

    This is nice that they did this. Not being familiar with the facts, I would think the American taxpayer would be more than willing to pay for the phone calls so that soldiers can call home to their loved ones - it can't be that expensive nowadays....

    For those of you who may not know, Kangaroo is owned by The Pantry Inc. which is based in Sanford.
