Maj. (ret) Mike Jones (left), president of 109th Infantry Regiment Association, presents Sgt. Maj. (ret) Kelvin Spencer, president of Tobyhanna Army Depot’s AUSA chapter, with a plaque of the 109th Infantry Regimental Colors.

The plaque represents the association’s recognition of the chapter’s support to the Soldiers and families of the 109th Infantry Regiment throughout the greater Scranton area. The event took place on April 12 at Tobyhanna Army Depot. The Association is based in Scranton.

“Tobyhanna’s AUSA chapter has been a valuable partner with the 109th Infantry Regiment Association, which provides support directly to our Gold Star Families, our Wounded Warriors, [and] members and Veterans of the 109th Infantry Battalion,” said Jones.

The 109th Infantry Regiment Association’s primary focus is to provide educational assistance in the form of a Legacy Scholarship Program awarded to the children of the 109th Infantry Regiment Gold Star Families.

The organization also supports wounded veterans through the Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors Program and support to Camp Freedom. Camp Freedom is a year-round adventure camp for individuals with disabilities, including veterans and first responders, their families, and Gold Star families, which provides quality hunting, shooting sports, fishing, camping, hiking, biking and other year round outdoor activities.
