Barbra Jackson (center), a teacher at Parkview High School and the primary Future Business Leaders of America advisor, directs some of her students to drop off care packages for deployed Soldiers. The FBLA collected more than 1,000 different items, filling 19 boxes, for servicemembers. The collection drive, now in its third year, was conceived by Jackson after learning from her husband, Capt. Brett Jackson, a medical logistics officer for G-4, 3rd Medical Deployment Support Command, about the power receiving a care package can have on a Soldier’s morale.
