    The Hero Boxes group in New Britain is making sure American service members overseas know that we all thank them for their services.

    Volunteers from the Hero Boxes group gathered at the Veterans of Foreign Wars wall to organize, pack and sip cazre packages to nine different soldiers overseas.

    Those nine soldiers will then distribute the packages to everyone in his or her unit right before the holidays.

    "It's a little piece home. It makes their deployment a heck of a lot easier and we're so proud to do it," Founder of the Hero Boxes group Karen Cote said.

    Over the years, Hero Boxes has sent out over 1,000 boxes to Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan.
