KSON Listeners Send A Pool To Iraq

Back in early June, listener Betty Stribling contacted KSON, San Diego, asking for help in getting a pool purchased and sent to her son-in-law, Jeff's unit in Tikrit, Iraq. KSON heard from Latreasa Harris and the businesses The Filling Station Pub and The Beach Club in Oceanside - together, donating $1,000. With Betty's hard work, and after several false starts because of the difficulty of finding the right size pool - and a shipper who could get it there - it was finally delivered. Jeff's Army unit in Iraq is now able to enjoy a bit of cooling comfort from home in the 100+ degree heat of Iraq.

After you View the photos I bet you agree with me: THIS is why you got into radio.
