Brothers, Bracelets, and Bravery: Twins Fundraise for Injured Veterans

 

WOODBURY, Conn., March 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Logan and Spencer Pasquariello are twin brothers with a strong heritage of military service. Growing up with two grandfathers who served their country inspired the brothers to turn a fifth-grade project into a way to honor their family. In the process, they found a way to help injured veterans served by Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP).

Youth Get Involved In Veteran Fundraising

Logan took his research a step further by making and selling paracord bracelets at a local festival to raise money for those WWP serves.

"I feel very proud of my grandkids talking about me in an honorable way, and the fact that it translates to Logan working to make a difference in veterans' lives makes it even more special," said grandfather Larry J. Pasquariello. "I couldn't be prouder of them."

Larry was wounded in the shoulder by sniper fire as his unit fought near Kontum, Vietnam. He was a member of 173rd Airborne Brigade and earned a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star for his bravery.

Logan and Spencer each told a piece of the story: Logan wrote about the Purple Heart, and Spencer wrote about the Bronze Star.

From Logan's perspective, his paternal grandfather earned a special place in his heart for simpler reasons. "What I would want people to know about Grandpa Pasquariello is that he is really good at telling stories and is really fun to hang out with," Logan said.

The twins' maternal grandfather, Donald P. Prue, also served in Vietnam. "Grandpa Prue is always there for us when we need him and is at almost all of our baseball games," Spencer added. The brothers learned about other relatives who served in WWII and became even more interested in helping veterans.

When generous Americans donate to make a difference in the lives of wounded warriors, their support funds programs ranging from physical wellness and adaptive sports to personal independence and mental health. Every donation makes a tangible difference for warriors and caregivers who participate in WWP programs and services at no cost to them.
