by Danielle Wagner

WATERLOO (KWWL) Almost three years ago, on February 18, 2007, U.S. Army Specialist Travis Vaughn of Cedar Falls was killed when the Chinook helicopter he was riding in lost power and crashed in Afghanistan.

To honor his memory, family and friends are organizing a benefit drive for the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown.

From Sunday, February 7 through Sunday, February 14 you can drop items off at area businesses. The greatest need is for hygiene items.

Tune in to the KWWL Saturday evening news at 6 p.m. to find out more about the drive organized by Travis Vaughn's family and friends.
