Local jewelry store giving away five fingerprint pendants to active duty military

Kenny Fares, a diesel mechanic with the 842nd Quartermaster Company in Kansas City, Kan., was home in Richmond March 30 for some R&R and time with family.

For recreation, he decided to check out the Business Expo at the city hall gym.

“I was there to check out the booths,” he said. “A lady who knew me said to check out the Pointer’s booth because they were giving things away.”

It turns out that Fares could literally put his finger on what the store had in mind.

His right index finger to be exact.

Fares is the first service person to take part in a promotion in which a fingerprint is burned into a sterling-silver pendant and given free of charge to the family.
