Matt Pelillo - Deployment to Afghanastan

My son-in-law Matt Pelillo is heading to Afghanstan.  Forward Operating Base (FOB) Shank.  I have attached an article with pictures from their winter.  He will be leaving in June and will be there for their next winter.

The Army issues equipment and clothing, but I would like to help him get upgraded items to protect him from the enemy and the elements.  FOB Shank is a very active combat zone and we want him to come home safe after he fights for our freedom.

We are raising funds for clothing, boots, and protection items. 

I found this site so you would have an easy way to contribute.  No donation is too big or too small.  The site will give you a receipt as well.

Thank you in advance for your support.  I will keep you posted through out the event. 

Let's work together to bring Matt home safe and sound.

Regards,

Deb Sharke
