Day 221 - Military Child of the Week Today we are saluting Kathleen Soysa from Rochester, New York.

On Friday, November 11, 2011 – Veterans’ Day – we attended a great event at the Calvary Chapel of Rochester, New York sponsored by the One Soldier at a Time organization.

This was their First Annual Veterans’ Day Salute. 

We were very proud and honored to be invited to attend this event saluting our military veterans both past and present. As you can imagine there were plenty of kids at the event which made me very happy since I just love meeting kids! We also had some Gift-A-Bears with us and at the end of the event we held a draw!

Kathleen was very happy to have her name drawn and she picked this great Marine Gift-A-Bear outfitted in a his dress uniform.

Today we salute Danielle Bacigalupo. Her father is Chief Warrant Officer James E. Bacigalupo IV who’s stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas with the 204th Military Intelligence Battalion. He recently returned from Kuwait in May of this year. Danielle is the sister of Jamie who was also a Military Child of the Week Salute.

Danielle’s mother writes;

Day 193 - Military Child of the Week“I’m nominating Danielle for the Military Child of the Week Salute given her time and enthusiasm she has for her eight year old sister’s 501c3 Angeles4Epilepsy organization which delivers gift bags to children in the hospital. Even though the focus is on epilepsy, there are no limits on who receives the gift bags. Danielle, who recently turned 4, saves her unopened Happy Meal toys to provide for children with epilepsy as part of her contribution. She is also instrumental in assembly the gift bags with all the toys, crafts and snacks and helps deliver the bags to the hospitals.”
