Soldiers thank CU for Internet service
MEDFORD, N.Y. (8/19/08)--Soldiers from a unit of the 82nd Airborne Division are thanking Suffolk FCU, Medford, N.Y., for providing them with Internet access after they were transferred to a remote region in Afghanistan last December and couldn’t call home. Patricia Gallagher, a Suffolk employee and the mother of one of the soldiers, asked the credit union to help. Suffolk FCU donated $5,700, which funded 18 laptops and Internet service from mid-December through April, when the unit’s duty ended (Newsday Aug. 18). To show the soldiers’ appreciation, Brian Gallagher, Patricia’s son, presented Suffolk with a flag that flew over the unit’s base. The gift lifted soldiers’ morale during the winter holidays, he said.
