Operation Pocket Field Pillow (PFP)

Ready to send to Kandahar, Germany and Iraq

Posted on: August 12, 2011

Here are almost 800 field and hospital pillows ready to be shipped. Fifty fleece pillows are headed to the Role 3 MMU in Kandahar, 75 are headed to Landstuhl, and almost 900 ACU field pillows will be shipped to soldiers from Virginia.

I spoke to the Churchland Lions Club a few weeks back, and had the chance to talk to a Virginia National Guard dad. He told me his son, along with nearly 1,000 of his closest buddies, is headed to Iraq for a year, and asked if Operation PFP would ship the Guardsmen field pillows. Of course we will!

During the latest sew-ins at Church of the Resurrection and the Beazley Senior Center (both in Portsmouth) we made nearly enough field pillows for every Guardsman from Virginia. The next sew-in is scheduled in 2 weeks, and there won’t be any problem at all finishing enough for all these soldiers.

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
