Operation Pocket Field Pillow (PFP)

The 12,000th ACU Field Pillow is shipped to FOB Sarkari Karez

Posted on: October 24, 2011

The last of 13 boxes of ACU Pocket Field Pillows is headed to a CAV regiment at FOB Sarkari Karez in southern Afghanistan. This regiment, part of the 10th Mountain Division, belongs to a BCT that will start to redeploy back home in several months.

One of the boxes contains the 12,000th PFP we’ve made and shipped; kinda sounds like alot — until I remember that we have about 100,000 American troops still in Afghanistan, and as they return home, replacements are sent to take their places.

The current administration is talking about withdrawal sometime in ’14…not soon enough for me.

In the meantime, we will continue working to let these young men and women know that we will not forget them.

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
