Crew: Thanks for help to Marine

On June 12, Michael Boucher -- a 22-year-old Marine and Oconee County native -- lost both legs above the knees in an IED explosion in Afghanistan. A group of Michael's friends' mothers have held several fundraisers to help his family with travel and home-modification expenses related to his injuries. We'd like to thank those who've offered help over the last few months.
