80 - CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, March 3 - Monday, March 6, 2006 Cape students collect items for Delaware soldiers in Iraq Cape Henlopen High School's Junior ROTC is collecting items to send to a Cape graduate serving in Iraq. Spe. Dustin Bradford, serving with the Delaware Army National Guard, wrote home and said his unit needs personal hygiene items like shaving cream, bug spray, sun block and shampoo. Because Bradford is a Cape graduate and many of the students know him, they decided to help the Bradford family by acting as a clearinghouse for the care packages. If any- one is interested in donating some items, call JROTC instructor Lt. Col. Ron Erale at Cape Henlopen High School at 645-7711. Displaying items they have collected are (l-r) JROTC cadets Blaine Cellurale, Mark Sudimak, Steven Thorp, Erale, Danielle DellaCamera and Dustin~s father, Joe Bradford.
