Westchester families send video messages to loved ones serving overseas
With help from the Red Cross, Westchester families were able to contact loved ones abroad.
For the men and women serving overseas, spending Thanksgiving without their families is tough. But thanks to a program called "Project Video Connect" several families got the chance to send video messages to their loved ones. "Project Video Connect" is run by the Westchester Chapter of the American Red Cross in White Plains. With donated computer equipment and broadband services from AOL, the project came to life.
Mount Kisco Ed Witherell and his wife recorded a message for their 23-year-old son Blake, who is serving in the 10th Mountain Division in Afghanistan. His mom says being able to send a message to him is a very happy occasion.
