Dylan (age 12)
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
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.
This is the 10th annual trip. 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.
Vice President Pence joined Cape Cod Cares for the Troop's "Operation: Santa" Christmas Party honoring our wounded warriors at Fort Belvoir.
