Bill Petras has been behind our mission to send packages to soldiers serving overseas for the past decade. He has sent over 300 packages to those serving our county so bravely. In this picture Bill has finished packing 9 boxes ready to be shipped out in December of 2018.
We take cash donations as well as items needed by our military men and women serving us overseas
Bill Petras and Cpl. Nick Hone, Golf Co., 26th MEU, from Camp Lejuene, NC.
Nick is the step son of Richard Buddelmeyer, AR, ABM, he returned in August from a 6 month deployment that included combat missions in Syria and Iraq.
By his side is Rich's grandson Nicholas. Rich got Nick and Bill together so Nick could thank him personally for the packages and to let him know how much it meant to him and the other men in his company to receive mail from home. This is a great program that exists only because of the support it gets from the Shields organization and its members.
Police & Firemen's Insurance is very proud to have supported the program as well over the past few years by donating candy and other items to help
fill the boxes.
