$1,380 raised

4 Years running

SMSgt (Ret) Robert "Terk" Terkay served with the United States Air Force and the 911th Airlift Wing for 33 years. He was a mentor, advisor, cheerleader, friend and father figure to many of his troops. He served his country with merit and distinction in Operation Desert Shield, Operation Desert Storm and Operation Enduring Freedom.  Cancer took him away from us this July 30.

Most of you know that on every deployment I've volunteered and raised funds and/or awareness for causes. I logged over 200 hours with the USO in Iraq and volunteered at the Kyrgyz Children's Cancer and Heart Centers while sponsoring two children's heart surgeries.

I don't want this deployment to be any different, but my role doesn't allow for me to afford the time to volunteer. So, to tie into two things I care about (taking care of Veterans and one of my mentors Bob Terkay), I want to solicit contributions for the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and make a SMSgt (Ret) Robert Terkay Memorial Donation this November 11 - Veterans' Day to coincide with my return.  I am not setting a goal other than making a donation in his name, so any amount will help.

Terk was Senior Vice Commander and Honor Guard for the VFW Post 191 in Canonsburg, PA, Vice President of Veteran’s Association, as well as a member of the VFW in Hills Station.

A Donation of $20 Ensures VFW:
- Educate 30 separating service members on how to receive their well-earned VA benefits
- Provide 500 minutes of phone time to homesick American troops stationed in the Middle East
- Serve 5 morale-boosting “welcome home” meals for service members recently back from combat
- Help cover rent, utilities or groceries for a military family struggling with the hardships of war

Thanks for your support!
