(SALEM) - 50 Salem active-duty soldiers will feel especially `cared for" when they receive specially-created packages from some Salem citizens.

On Wednesday, Madrona Hills retirement community veterans, along with Oregon Army National Guard soldiers and Salem-area businesses, will join forces in Operation Legacy, to create and assemble care packages for the active-duty soldiers serving in Iraq that hail from Salem. Twenty-five percent of the residents from Madrona Hills are veterans who have served in all branches of the military from WWII to Operation Desert Storm.

They have experienced changes unlikely to be seen by any other generation.

The event, will also feature a dessert extravaganza and patriotic music by Madrona Hills` very own "Kitchen Band." Operation Legacy, is also open to the public, and runs from 2:30 until 4:00 PM.

For those who wish to participate or contribute, or for more information, please contact Madrona Hills at (503) 362-9141. The Madrona Hills retirement community is located at 707 Madrona St SE.
