    The Henry County High School class of '08 is collecting items for its sixth annual "Operation Henry County Cares" which provides a variety of supplies for soldiers stationed overseas.

    This year they've "adopted" 130 male and 37 female service members stationed in either Iraq, Afghanistan, or Kuwait; some of whom have a connection to the county.

    "This year is particularly special for us because two of the brigades we are supporting are being led by two Henry County graduates," said Judy Rice, Henry County High School Senior Sponsor.

    There is an immediate sense of warmth upon entering the household of Ben, 33, and Kristen, 30, Secaur. The scene is a bit chaotic but charmingly so, if that's possible. It's got an obvious familial feel with a friendly dog and two young girls scampering about the living room which is decorated with artwork, a coffee table and couch, and a few chairs as well as some toys scattered on the floor.
