Eastern Shore Resident Sending Scroll To Fallen Marines

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - With the death of 10 marines just this week, community support is pouring out for our troops.

Our friend and weather watcher George Jackson decided to bring a "Condolence Scroll" to the Applebee's in Salisbury to give patrons a chance to send their condolences for the marines who were killed while training in Nevada.

"This is my absolute pleasure," said Robbi Gevaudan, Applebee's in Salisbury general manager. "I came from a long line of military. My son actually stationed in Camp Pendleton right now."

Jackson tells WMDT that "those marines train to go to Afghanistan for us and our country and we've got to remember them and their families."

Jackson will have the scroll tomorrow at "EGGstravaganza," which is located in Easton near the Target Shopping Center from 11 AM until 4 PM.
