Operation Pocket Field Pillow (PFP)

1,477 and Counting…

Posted on: April 28, 2009

Including the boxes send to Landstuhl, we’re almost at the halfway point…until, that is, we start adding more Regiments to the list!

We’ve heard from a wonderful Vietnam vet in NC, along with folks in a small VA town, the Ladies and Men of St. Therese in Chesapeake, and a local VWF. Each has made a donation to continue Operation PFP, and we’re so thankful! We’ve even gotten a request from a family in TX, to send a box of PFPs to their son and his crew, Cavalry Soldiers with an Infantry Regiment, and they’re on the way as we speak.

A small group of young girls in Va. Beach offered to spend a Saturday afternoon, not at the mall or playing with their DSs, but sitting together stuffing pillows. Together, they worked on almost 300 PFPs, that we’ll send out in about a week.

I’ve heard from several Soldiers, and although we certainly don’t expect anything, it was so great to get letters! Each of these brave young Troops has made it very clear that support from home is what helps keeps them going. And my son tells me “Mom, there are pillows all over Afghanistan!”

Well, son, that’s the whole point!

Operation PFP is made possible in part by my small business, Just For Baby Gifts, donations of ACU by the Carlisle Finishing Plant, fleece donated by Polartec, supplies donated by Brother International, and by the untold hours of work by hundreds of proud and grateful American volunteers.

...til they all come home
