On January 27th, Dylan was honored to meet with soldiers
from the Wounded Warrior Unit at Fort Belvoir, VA.

We were amazed by their resilience in dealing with difficulties
their determination to recover from their injuries but most of all
their pride and dedication to our country. Cape Cod Cares for the Troops
delivered over $5000. in needed supplies. These soldiers have given
their all to our country and they deserve our continued support.

Dylan has promised the continued support of Cape Cod Cares for the Troops.
