Commemorating 17 Years

April 2, 2023 was the 17th anniversary of the passing of our son, Lance Corporal Eric A. Palmisano, while serving our country in Iraq. We have been so proud to honor his legacy through the Palmisano Care Package Project since May of 2006. It means so much to us to support our troops by sending them essential items that provide a little slice of home.  

We want to thank our many supporters throughout the years. Your generosity is the lifeblood of the Palmisano Care Package Project. Because of you, each year our mission to support our troops makes our son proud and has reached farther than we ever dreamed possible.

Many thanks to everyone and may God keep our troops safe and bring them home to their loved ones.

My beloved son, my baby, my youngest, my heart and my soul and the most compassionate son a mother could ever ask for. Eric. I love you son I miss you so very much every single day and whoever said it gets easier with the passing of time was so very wrong. Your legacy lives on in our Care Package Project, and I promise you that as long as I am breathing on this earth, I will see to it that you will never be forgotten. You are my hero, my pride and my joy.
RIP Marine, your work on earth is done.

Love always and forever, Mom.
