Following big sister's example: to help disabled veterans.
This year, NSO Cabarrus received another donation. This time, 11-year-old Christina Craig added her earnings from the sale of her 4-H hog to Foster Construction at the county fair in Greenup, Ky., to Rachel's contribution. Together the girls donated $603.10 to help disabled veterans.
Rachel and Christina live with their younger sister Angela and parents, Terry and Sandy Craig, in Greenup, Ky. Terry and Sandy have made an effort to teach their children the value of America's veterans and their role in securing and maintaining freedom for our nation.
"Rachel started donating her money and I kinda followed what she did," Christina said. "I felt good about donating my money--I thought I was doing the right thing. The disabled veterans had to go through suffering and I think they deserve a little bit more kindness."
NSO Cabarrus visited the Craigs at the fair in 2005 and was impressed with the girls' knowledge and handling of their 4-H hogs, as well as their willingness to assist disabled veterans.
"I had a chance to meet the Craig family and thank them for their previous contributions to the DAV and was most impressed with Rachel and Christina on their awareness of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and their willingness to donate so generously to the DAV. They are remarkable young women."
