Harper Donates Laptops to National Guardsmen
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—A months-long deployment to Afghanistan for some SC National Guard members has become a lot more tolerable after the engineering unit received 10 new laptop computers donated by Harper Corporation of America.
Since arriving in January, the Fort Mill, SC-based 1222 Engineer Company Guardsmen have been housed in tents at the Kandahar Airfield. But heavy rains in February swept through their wooden-floored quarters. Besides ruining clothing and personal items, the deluge destroyed the laptop computers, cell phones and iPods the soldiers use to stay connected with family and friends back home.
