Bloomer Veterans

Bloomer military veterans who are returning from combat duty overseas are in for a nice surprise.

Since February, the town's Chamber of Commerce has been doing the "Mission Welcome Home" project.

It's a community wide effort to give Bloomer veterans a care package when they return home from serving in combat overseas.

A father of a Marine who served in Iraq says it's good to know they have the community's support.

The care packages have $2,500 worth of certificates from more than 30 Bloomer businesses.
