Operation Pocket Field Pillow (PFP)

ACU Field Pillows headed to Iraq for the VNG, 2-183 CAV

Posted on: September 11, 2011

I’ve been coordinating this effort for the VNG troops with Pam Korsen, the Task Force 183 Squadron Family Readiness Coordinator. The 2-183rd CAV deployed, along with their supporting units, hundreds and hundreds of troops all from Virginia to Iraq. And we’ve made ACU field pillows for all of them.

The first wave of boxes has been shipped, and more will be on the way as soon as we know where to send them. The small box you see on the top is headed to Afghanistan, to our adopted Soldier, Daniel Pena (he’s in Kandahar with the 4th Infantry Division). I heard from a Chaplain with the 3-71 CAV that there were lots and lots of Soldiers who could use a little support from home. He sent me a list of 11 young troops, and I sent the list out to all the PFP volunteers; before 24 hours passed, each of those troops had someone back home to stand up for him.

If you’d like to adopt a Soldier, please just drop me an email or leave a comment.

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
