DOTHAN, AL (WTVY) Local military wives will soon visit their soldier husbands in style - and it’s all thanks to the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce and the Houston County Commission.

Monday, the wives of Dothan National Guard’s 186th Engineer Company were given custom T-shirts. The presentation was made by Commission Chairman Mark Culver and Military Affairs Committee Chairman Tom Boyle. Heather Thorn was on hand to represent the 36 military wives. She says they’ll wear the shirts proudly during their upcoming visit to the company.

“They’ve been very good at helping taking care of us while their gone and taking care for the boys and all the donations and stuff we have coming in,” said Heather Thorn. “We’re very appreciative of everything the county is doing for us.”

Dothan National Guard's 186th Engineer Company deployed on August 14th. In a few weeks, the wives will travel to the Midwest to visit their spouses at their training station.
