Dylan  (age 12)
founder of Cod Cares for the Troops


Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops is a non-profit 501(c)(3) all volunteer organization started in 2005 by 12 year old Dylan DeSilva. Dylan wanted to find a way to honor our troops for their service, dedication and sacrifices to our country. With the help of his family and friends he sends care packages to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan on a weekly basis. In 2008, we added Rocky's Warriors a program to send canine care packages to our military dogs.  In 2015, we added "Talking to the Moon" a program to support care givers of our wounded warriors.

SGT. Mark Vecchione
Fishing Trip / BBQ

 SGT. Vecchione was born and raised on Cape Cod, he was also the first Cape Codder KIA in Iraq. To honor Mark, CCC4TT and Rock Harbor Fishing Charters host a FREE day of fishing on Cape Cod Bay to Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans. 

 Deep sea fishing vessels are filled with veterans, sent out for hours of fishing and return to a BBQ lunch. Games for the families and kids, raffles, and much more. So many great memories were made.
