"Society Supports Veterans, Serves Community"

The College of William and Mary (8 NOV 2007)
The members of the society also started their own project, entitled “Project Cool Aid.” The members gathered money from donors and bought care packages for members of the 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines. The packages included “things that would help accomplish their mission,” said Zaal, including Cool-Aid helmet inserts for Kevlar. “I actually used one of these Cool-Aids when I was in Iraq,” said Zaal. “I know how hot it gets in the summer. So we decided, ‘Why don’t we sponsor a unit that’s going to be in Iraq in the summer and help support them with these Cool-Aids?’.”
