Linda and Doug Barchus, troop support coordinators for the Backus American Legion and Auxiliary, were honored by the Backus post for their years of service in coordinating the making of cool ties for troops in Southwest Asia and the sending of holiday gifts and supplies to various units serving there. The auxiliary won a best in the nation award from the National Auxiliary in 2010 for its active duty troop support program. The ties help keep soldiers cool in hot weather. Presenting the award to the couple and thanks from their colleagues was incoming auxiliary president Jean Dawson.
