Holly Hemmingsen visited San Antonio during the Thanksgiving holiday to give back to soldiers serving for the United States. She stayed with her uncle and aunt, Steve and Claudia Hardeman.
Mrs. Hardeman is an employee for the main headquarters for the Valero Energy Corporation, which provides for and serves a Thanksgiving feast for area service men and women every year. Miss Hemmingsen, along with her aunt, uncle and cousin, Zachary, helped feed and serve 500 soldiers of the Army and Navy. The feast consisted of typical Thanksgiving foods with pies and drinks.
