Captain Kevin Drue Donnelly was born 55 years ago today, November 14, 1958.
To celebrate Kevin’s life today Kevin’s mother requested a gift in her son’s name.
Today, an “Upgrade Kit” was purchased with Operation Helmet.
www.operation-helmet.org gives soldiers now in service “cushioning helmet pads” to help to protect from brain injury.
Approximately 70,105 helmets have been upgraded for our soldiers — by donations.
Operation Helmet may be be reached at www.operation-helmet.org and by phone 936-449-9706.
Their motto is “Help Protect our Heroes.”
This Helmet Upgrade Kit, in memory of Captain Kevin Drue Donnelly, will assist a soldier — and his loved ones.
Captain Kevin would be 55 today. We would have celebrated together. Assisting a soldier in Kevin’s name has eased the heartache of his mother and that of his sister (me). We – family – stand together – honoring our soldiers and veterans.
“Why? I gave him my Word.”
