Adopt-A-Soldier Program

MONTEREY, Ca. - In an effort to support our soldiers currently fighting the Global War on Terror, Laser Devices, Inc. has implemented a corporate-wide Adopt-A-Soldier Program to send care packages to soldiers currently serving in Afghanistan.

Laser Devices' President and CEO, Heinz Thummel said, "This program will allow us to support and assist our soldiers as they continue to fight on our behalf."

Mechanical Engineer Jack Butler's son, CPL Robert Butler and Incoming Quality Inspector David Wilhelm's son, PFC Joe Wilhelm are both currently serving in Afghanistan. Co-workers lent their support by donating items such as food, toiletries, drink mixes, movies, games, magazines - and many of the other comforts from home that troops can't find overseas.

A total of 8 boxes were packed and shipped out in October. They arrived the day after Thanksgiving. Both boys told their fathers that they were overwhelmed by the kindness of the company and sincerely appreciate the generosity and thoughtfulness. A second shipment is scheduled to go out the week before Christmas.

Currently over 330,000 troops are deployed worldwide and many of them do not receive support from home. If you are interested in implementing an Adopt-A-Soldier program of your own, please visit, or for more information.
