       Marine Corps League Gunnery Sgt. John W. Zaengle and Detachment Senior-Vice Commandant Al DePue presents a "Toys for Tots" plaque to Col. Howard "Chip" Eissler, 111th Fighter Wing commander, Horsham Air Guard Station, Pa. Air National Guard, on Feb. 14 in appreciation for the hard work and support Wing members provided to their organization during last year's "Toys for Tots" campaign.
       Wing members helped the Marine Corps League by collecting donations from over 900 drop-off locations across Montgomery County and transporting them to a warehouse, where league volunteers sorted and packaged them, before being distributed into the local community.
       This year, approximately 18,000 toys were given to 9,000 children in the local community.  DePue served in the Marine Corps and is a retired master sergeant with the 111th.
