SACRAMENTO, CA (PRWEB) April 27, 2004
A new website designed to support the soldiers of the Sacramento-based US Army Reserve 304th Psychological Operations Company was announced today by the 304th POC Fund (Âthe FundÂ). The website is http://www.304thpocfund.org.
"The Fund is a private civilian association dedicated to supporting the soldiers of the 304th.Â said Steven Tolle, Director of the 304th POC Fund, "The Fund is a morale, welfare and recreation fund for the unit. The website will allow the Fund, and the soldiers of the 304th, greater visibility."
The Fund is also kicking off its initial fundraising effort. The goal is to raise $50,000 by June 1, 2004, Tolle said. "These funds will be used to assist the widow and newborn son of the 304th soldier killed in action in Afghanistan; help in the retraining of a 304th solder who was severely wounded in Afghanistan and can no longer pursue his career in law enforcement, as well as support for the soldiers during their drills and future deploymentsÂ. The top 5 donors will be invited to attend the 304thÂs Welcome Home Dining Out event on June 19th, 2004. Complete details can be found on the website.
This effort is personal, explained Tolle. "I served with and personally know most of the soldiers the Fund will support." Tolle was assigned to the 304th for five years before his enlistment expired in 2001.
The Fund is a private association and is not affiliated with the US Army, US Army Reserve, Department of Defense or US Government.
