Hutchinson honored by Coast Guard

Adopt-A-Soldier Door County founder Nancy Hutchinson pointed the finger at everyone else Wednesday when the United States Coast Guard recognized her for her efforts supporting local military members. Hutchinson has raised thousands of dollars for the troops since the organization was founded in 2008 to do everything from sending care packages to soldiers at home and abroad to providing interest-free loans to Coast Guard members struggling to make ends meet during the government shutdown. She received a signed letter of appreciation from U.S. Coast Guard Commandant Admiral Karl L. Schultz, a plaque of recognition from the three units stationed in Sturgeon Bay, and a challenge coin for her efforts. A humble Hutchinson says it is the community that deserves the thank you.

Hutchinson and Adopt a Soldier are currently collecting items for their Fourth of July boxes to be sent. For those looking for inspiration, the theme of the box is campfire s’mores.
