Members of a Burbank entertainment group returned earlier this month from Bosnia, Sarajevo and Kosovo, where they presented shows to U.S. military personnel. The company, Dial M Produc- tions, sent 11 performers who presented two shows. "A Dial M Murder Mystery" is an audience participation whodunit. The group also performed "Here's to America," which producer Peggy Phillips described as a song-and-dance show. "What [the troops] really love, besides the shows, is that we hang out with them and sign autographs," Phillips said.

Knowing that armed forces personnel stationed overseas cannot be home for the holidays, Austin asked students to create wreaths and write letters to send to them. Many classes created wreaths using green Styrofoam bases or artificial pine needles with green paper Christmas trees, red paper hearts and holiday ornaments.

Laura Sturza BURBANK -- Between 300 to 400 military personnel will be receiving care packages from Burbank residents and businesses with the city's recent first shipment. When the program started in early February, organizers hoped to "adopt-a-platoon" of about 30 service people.

When John and Karen arrived in Russia for the adoption, they soon found the girl had brothers. “In 1992 we went from zero to four kids,” Karen said.

BURBANK — Mike Boyd felt helpless when he watched news reports of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. “I would look at the news every day and see kid, after kid, after kid dying,” Boyd said. “I felt so much for our U.S. troops who were dying.” Instead of wondering what he could do to help the troops, Boyd went into to action. He founded a series of “American Soldier Thank You” concerts to help raise funds for military personnel. “It was something I needed to do for them, knowing all the things they have done for us,” said Boyd, the founder of Burbank-based Singboy Productions.

A squadron of World War II-era aircraft soared over Olive Street late Saturday morning, prefacing the patriotic atmosphere of the 25th annual Burbank on Parade. City officials, local business leaders and a host of eclectic presentations marched down the normally quiet community street with horses, carriages, marching bands and the Batmobile in honor of the nation's troops. And the fly-over by the Van Nuys-based Condor Squadron, a group of military enthusiasts with vintage aircraft, set the stage.
