I’m writing to express my thanks and gratitude to the community and organizations that came out in support for our hometown hero, wounded-in-action Staff Sgt. Daniel Fye. The Fye family from Antioch would also like to express its gratitude, the love and support for its son, his wife and four children.
Staff Sgt. Fye has a long road in recovery and rehabilitation. He has been fitted with his prosthesis and is working hard at the Intrepid for Wounded Warriors in Texas with his wife and children. His mother, father, sister and brother continue to go help out when they can.
Thank you also to the newspapers and reporters for taking the interest in the Fye family, helping get the word out for support. Thank you: VFW Post – 6435 Antioch, VFW Post 202 Brentwood, ALR – Post 161 Antioch, Lions Club – Antioch. The Winners Circle Western Wear – Sue and Fred Pederson, HUGO’s Bar, Roddy Ranch Golf Course, DJ Luna, Strumming for Vets. Vendors: Stella and Dot, AVON, and Michelle’s Photography. The Golden Hills Community Church, Orale Restaurant, Trader Joe’s, Melo’s Pizza, Road Kill Roy and cooking team, Mark Sanchez’s Ink’d up Tattoos, Markstein Beverage Co. and Raley’s. Donations of desserts and side dishes (too many to name).
Thank you to all the many volunteers from East County Military Families and East County Veterans. Please continue to support and pray for this family. Janis hopes that they will not forget the sacrifice that her son has made and all the other troops fighting for our freedoms. Thank you, Antioch; there is greatness among us. Seek out the good and continue serving those who serve.
