I came across this article yesterday. The first family was at Fort McNair on June 25th to stuff 15,000 backpacks with books for children of military personnel. The two books given out were "The Penderwicks" by Jeanne Birdsall, and "The Lightning Thief" by Rick Riordan (with cover art by John Rocco!!!!). Pretty cool.
