Dragon Skin fundraisers to be featured on PBS (UPDATED)

Shortly after April 14th, the PBS show “The Newshour with Jim Lehrer” will highlight a Tennessee couple trying to raise enough money to equip their Marine son and his squad with new Dragon Skin body armor before the Marines deploy to Iraq. So far they’ve only raised enough money to buy one vest, but look on the bright side. Even though the Marine Corps won’t foot the bill, at least they’ll let Lance Corporal Alex La Rosa and his mean wear the best armor on the market.
If these young warriors were in the Army instead, they’d be screwed.
To help, call Javier La Rosa at (865) 766-9840.
