Brad Messer Commentary

This is about a small group of San Antonio Cub Scouts, and their very big-hearted idea.

Saturday morning the Cubs will take donations for the widow of Army Specialist James Kiehl, killed in action near Nasariyah, Iraq. He was buried Monday at Center Point Cemetery. His widow received the flag that had covered his coffin.

Their baby is due in a few days.

The Cubs are asking for donations of baby-related items to present to Mrs. Kiehl. They seek new baby clothes, blankets, bottles and the like. Others have suggested that WalMart gift cards or even cash could be useful down the line.

Saturday morning, 9 'til noon, the Cubs will be at St. Luke's School parking lot, off Loop 410 on Callaghan. If you can't make it then, please drop your donation today or tomorrow, here at KTSA, 4050 Eisenhauer in San Antonio, and we'll get it to the Cub Scouts on Saturday.

Helping the widow and infant is an opportunity to show respect and say thank you. Which, of course, we know in our hearts can never be enough.
