Support our troops

Dear editor,

To all helping us send packages to the eight units we have deployed I received two notes from FDNY members deployed – one in Kuwait and one in Afghanistan.

Thank you so much for the packages – we love all the fun stuff you sent. It was a real moral booster.

Thank you for the multiple packages! Donations like yours serve as a reminder to our troops that people back home are always thinking of them. We truly appreciate your support!

I thank all of you, this is why we do it. We have the best and they deserve the best. One sad note, two of the men that were killed about a month ago were from our unit from Fort Bragg. I donated two flags in their honor for the Veterans Day Parade. Think about someone you want to honor and donate a flag (or make a donation in their name) but most of all be sure to come to the parade and wave a flag for all those who served in the past, serving now and those in the future.
