SUFFOLK COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT SHOWS SUPPORT FOR THE TROOPS


Lieutenants Jose Burgos and Jose Gomez of the Nashua Street Jail collected supplies for service personnel stationed in Iraq. The huge quantity of supplies will be sent to the Bravo Surgical Company, which consists of both Marines and Navy personnel. The unit was selected because they are treating injured American soldiers and Marines as well as Iraqi civilians. The officers collected 5-7 large boxes worth of supplies and $435 that will be used to buy additional items and to pay to ship the items to Iraq. Lt. Burgos’ son and nephew are both in the Marine Corps. Corporal Steve Whalen of the Jail was also instrumental in coordinating the collection of items and money.
