Associated Press Release

ATLANTA (AP) -- Residents of an Atlanta-area retirement home want to know why care packages they tried to send to U.S. troops overseas were left sitting in a nearby post office for months.

WSB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1ht9fjp) that residents of the King's Bridge Retirement Community on Briarcliff Drive packed and sent more than 100 care packages. They were intended for troops serving in Afghanistan for Veterans Day, more than three months ago.

But the packages only made it about a mile to a post office in DeKalb County.

The U.S. Postal Service said in a statement that a paperwork error resulted in the mailing not being processed. Officials said the packages would be processed immediately and sent to the troops on Tuesday.
