A New Hampshire veteran who works in a post office paid out of his own pocket for a woman’s care package to troops overseas. Christina Morancie and her co-workers at Littleton Regional Hospital had collected two large boxes of food and other items for a package bound for her stepson’s New Hampshire National Guard unit in Afghanistan. WMUR-TV reported that Gardner Chamberlain, a US Navy veteran who works at the Post Office in Whitfield, paid the $60 postage to send the package. ‘‘He just looked at me and he said, ‘You are all set,’ and I said, ‘What do you mean?’ and he said, ‘We’re here, and they are over there,’ ’’ Morancie said.
