Don Patterson gets Certificate of Appreciation from U.S. Army

Don Patterson was presented a Certificate of Appreciation and coin from Michael S. Linnington, Major General, US Army, Commanding.

The certificate read "Outstanding civic support to America's Wounded Warriors in care of the U.S. Army Military District of Washington's Medical Evacuation to CONUS Hospitals (MECH) operation.

For many years, Mr. Don Patterson, also known as the "Cane Man", backed by several civic organizations with which he has cultivated relationships, has provided help to Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, Sailors, and Coast Guardsmen, through donated clothing, blankets, food products, and walking canes.

On numerous occasions, he has visited MECH operations at Andrews Air Force Base and National Capital Region Hospitals, offering his time and assistance, and providing critical supplies.

Mr. Patterson, ever-ready to help, patriotic, generous, and faithful to those making the greatest sacrifices, has volunteered countless hours for America's Wounded.

By these actions, Mr. Patterson has demonstrated superior allegiance to the noble tradition of charitable organization support of the America's Armed Forces".

By Michael S. Linnington, Major General, US Army, Commanding.

After receiving the award Mr. Patterson thanked the General and all there and stated "I basically am just the UPS guy for great organizations who support and supply me like The Heart of a Marine Foundation, Marines Care Foundation, the Slattery Detachment, MCL and all the others who have helped me to help America's Wounded".

Street Dedication in New Jersey, LCPL Phillip E. Frank Way
Aberdeen Township, NJ, dedicated a newly constructed street in Cliffwood to Phil who was KIA April 8th, 2004 in Iraq. The Heart of a Marine Foundation, founded by Phil's parents Roy & Georgette Frank for Phil, held a reception immediately after. The Heart of a Marine Foundation presented the Thomas Jerome House with 4 computers & apasia software for the TBI patients at the new Thomas Jerome House being built nearby.



"Stitch and Sew" Pillows

(L-R)Standing: Mario Monaco, Marine GYSGT, Ret, Liz Hackett, Operation Jersey Cares, Gail Smith, Virginia Cirelli. Front seated: Julia Luria.

Being busy and productive has always been a way of life for octogenarian Julia Luria of Chatham, New Jersey. Along with her daughter, Gail Smith and niece, Virginia Cirelli, these dedicated women have met once a week since late last fall for a "stitch and sew" producing over 300 pressure pillows.

Their pillows have been personally given to amputees at Walter Reed and the Naval Hospital as well as distributed to incoming wounded servicemen/women at Andrews Air Force Base as they are transported to locations closer to their homes.

This sewing project, designed by Janice Jamison, was begun under the auspices of Operation Jersey Cares last August and has resulted in approximately 1,000 pillows being sewn by women of all ages, both the young and the young at heart.
