Wausau staffers adopt soldier

Atlanta area employees of Wausau Insurance have developed an “Adopt-a-Soldier” program to support U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Wausau underwriter Chris Yates conceived the idea after attending the funeral of a friend killed by a suicide bomber in Iraq in the fall of 2006.

Yates divided the Alpharetta office into 12 teams, each responsible for sending a care package during one month of the year. The packages all go to one soldier and his platoon. The soldiers communicate with Wausau employees through letters and photo e-mails, which are displayed on an office bulletin board.
