Alabama Newscenter — Military daughter is ‘rock star’ to deployed Alabama soldiers

Deployments are always a challenge for families, but one soldier and his daughter have found a way to stay connected. Kindel Whitaker paints rocks with creative designs, and her father, Capt. Michael Whitaker, hides them throughout Camp Arifjan, Kuwait. Other soldiers then have the opportunity to find them, take a picture with the rock, and hide it somewhere else for another soldier to find.

“It’s a great way for us to stay connected,” Michael Whitaker said. “We used to do geocaching together, and this gives her a creative outlet while I’m deployed. We also both see it as a way of honoring those who sacrifice.”
