Sending sweets to troops overseas

Posted:

MIDDLETON (WKOW) -- A Middleton dentist is using tooth decay as a way to get kids to take it easy on the candy this Halloween, and support our troops at the same time.

Dr. Chris Kammer is paying kids $1 for every pound of candy they bring to his office on November 1.

Then, he plans to send the candy to troops serving in Iraq.

Army Reserve staff say this small treat from home really raises troop morale.

There is a five pound limit per person.

Dr. Kammer hopes to collect 1,000 pounds of candy.
