God Bless Our Troops

Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski II, Memorial Fund

U.S. Air Force (USAF)



I am an active duty Air Force single mother of two boys who attend the McGuire AFB Youth Center. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the gift card I was presented with from the Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski, II Memorial Fund. The Youth Center worker walked up to me and said she wanted to give me something that she felt I deserved but she did not want me to be offended. I had no idea what she was referring to.

Tears immediately came to my eyes when she explained the fund to me, its purpose, and presented me with the envelope containing the gift card. It came at a time when I did not know how the holidays were going to be for me and my children. I can truly say that you have fulfilled your mission. Both my morale and welfare was uplifted and improved greatly and I cannot thank you enough. Thank you from the bottoms of mine and my children’s hearts. Happy Holidays!!
Very Respectfully and Humbly,


Airman from McGuire
