Operation Pocket Field Pillow (PFP)

The 3,000th PFP is on its way to Afghanistan

Posted on: August 7, 2009

We’ve just completed 2 boxes of PFPs headed for a Brigade Support Battalion, FOB Shank, in the Loghar Province of eastern Afghanistan.

Included in one of the boxes is the PFP embroidered with “3K.”

Along these lines, here’s what we heard from a young Soldier in an Airborne Infantry unit deployed near the Khost Province in Afghanistan:

”I forgot to thank you for the pillows, so lucky you sent them when you did, i dont think ive spent more than 3 days on my fob in the past month and a half, weve eaither been in trucks or on the ground and those pillows are awsome.”

No need for you to thank us; you and the troops have our sincere admiration and deepest appreciation, David, for the tough job you’ve been asked to do for us. We’re keeping you in our thoughts.

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
