Millis MA Buddy Bowl to honor local hero Sgt Joe Deslauriers



A true American Hero,   32 year old Air Force Technical Sergeant, Joe Deslauriers

is an Explosive Ordinance Disposal specialist who has served a tour in Kuwait a tour in Iraq and two tours in Afghanistan.   He has received a bronze star.

Sgt Deslauriers was seriously injured

while on a mission clearing an area for a convoy where it appears an IED was remotely detonated.     He has suffered the loss of both legs and an arm.    We understand he is up for the challenge and is progressing each day, but the road to recovery will be long and hard.
This local hero from Bellingham MA, and his wife Lisa are expecting their first child in December.

Cal:  This is a great opportunity to give something back, not just to a worthy cause, but to one of your local heroes who has lost so much risking his life for others.
