Emily Perez

Since its inception, each month LHCP has honored a military service member who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Every box which is shipped from LHCP is labeled with information about the Honoree. The monthly Honoree’s story is attached to the box so others can read about those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom. This month’s Honoree is Army 2nd Lt. Emily J.T. Perez.

Army officer, 23, leapt high in life cut short by war

By Rona Marech
September 22, 206

Quick and intense. That’s how Emily J.T. Perez performed on the track, one coach said – and the same could be said for the rest of her short life. She was a star student and talented athlete. She was a captain of her high school track team and a leader at her alma mater, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. She helped start an AIDS ministry at her church.

A 23-year-old soldier from Fort Washington in Prince George’s County, 2nd Lt. Emily J.T. Perez was killed while on duty in Al Kifl, Iraq, on Sept. 12. A Medical Service Corps officer, she died during combat after an improvised explosive device detonated near her Humvee, according to the Department of Defense.

“She was just the kind of kid you want your own children to be like,” said Joe Rogers, the assistant track coach at West Point.

“Emily, as far as I’m concerned, was one of the most brilliant people I ever met. She was the consummate intellectual,” said the Rev. Michael Bell, executive pastor at Peace Baptist Church in Washington. “But she was not the kind of person who was only book-oriented. … She always wanted to help someone, to help the community.”

When she was in high school, Lieutenant Perez was instrumental in starting the HIV/AIDS ministry at her church. She was also an HIV/AIDS educator with the Red Cross.

Her desire to help led to personal sacrifices: Shortly before shipping out to Iraq, Lieutenant Perez flew from Texas to Maryland to be a bone marrow donor to a stranger who was a match, Pastor Bell said.

Lieutenant Perez, who came from a military family, spent much of her youth in Germany. She returned to the United States in 1998 and graduated from Oxon Hill High School in 2001. She excelled at West Point, where she was a medal-winning athlete and a top-ranked cadet, said Jerry Quiller, the head track coach. She also had one of the highest grade-point averages of all the students on the track team, he said.

“You know the old advertisement – ‘Be all you can be,'” Mr. Quiller said. “You probably couldn’t do better than that.”

In her junior year, when the track team was sorely in need of a triple-jump competitor, Emily Perez – who had never attempted the event – volunteered to give it a try, Mr. Rogers said. She practiced the way she did everything, with intensity, and competed within a few weeks.

After a particularly good jump in an Army-Navy meet, she threw her arms around Mr. Rogers’ neck. “It was one of those spontaneous moments of joy for both of us,” he said.

That was Lieutenant Perez, friends said – bubbly, dedicated, talented, opinionated, confident.
Another West Point classmate, Tanesha Love, who sometimes sought tutoring help from Lieutenant Perez, said, “You could hear her laugh from probably miles away. There was no doubt in your mind who that was as soon as you heard it.”

Lieutenant Perez’s family is establishing a scholarship fund for African-American and Hispanic women who share the soldier’s passion for medical services and sociology.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at Ebenezer African Methodist Episcopal Church in Fort Washington. Lieutenant Perez will be buried Tuesday at the West Point cemetery in New York.

Survivors include her parents, Daniel and Vicki Perez of Fort Washington; and a brother, Kevyn, of Fayetteville, N.C.

Emily was the first female graduate of West Point to die in the Iraq Wardia, the first West Point graduate of the “Class of 9/11” to die in combat, and the first female African-American officer to die in combat.

Goodbyes are Never Easy

It is with saddened hearts, but much love, that we say goodbye to our steadfast treasurer, Sharon Buck. After fourteen years of service to Landstuhl Hospital Care Project, Sharon has decided to step down.

Sharon came to LHCP in the beginning and has been the one and only treasurer all these years. She lent her expertise and effort in getting LHCP its non-profit status. She kept up with the special registrations needed for certain states. Basically, LHCP would never have been able to help all the people it has helped without Sharon working in the background!

The LHCP board will truly miss Sharon’s presence! “[Sharon’s] skills as a Treasurer are the best I have ever seen. She has been so faithful about keeping LHCP on the good side of the IRS. She stays up to date with the state registrations and all of the financial data… I would not have been able to complete the Annual Report each year without her attention to detail. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with her during my time with LHCP,” commented Donna Bolen, Vice President, when asked about Sharon. Karen Grimord, LHCP President, says, “It is a sad day. She has touched more lives than we can imagine.”

On a personal level, I worked with Sharon on the board for five years. She was so helpful and welcoming when I came in, knowing nothing. She’s such a lovely person, always giving of herself—above and beyond what is asked.

There is a silver lining in this cloud of goodbye, she’s not going far, Sharon will still stay a part of LHCP and continue to support our mission. Sharon, for all you’ve done, all you’ve given these many years, all of us at LHCP thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Maria Waddell, Editor


Troop Thanks

How are you? Happy holidays!! I wanted to let you know that we have received all of your recent packages. It was a nice treat to receive the fleece blankets, coffee, flags and additional care packages. The soldiers and myself truly appreciate all of your team’s efforts with putting these together. If there is anything we can do in return to show our gratitude, please let me know. Thank you again.

LHCP Welcomes New Treasurer

As we must say goodbye to our long-time Treasurer, Sharon, we get to say a big hello and welcome to Sherry Karlson! Sherry has been a supporter of LHCP for many years, but now she is stepping into the position of Treasurer.

Sherry grew up in Clinton MD, the oldest daughter of a Navy Veteran. She graduated High School in 1979 and met her husband in 1985 when he was stationed at the Pentagon. They married in March 1987. She moved around the world with her husband while he was stationed in Naples Italy, Travis Air Force Base (AFB) and Keesler AFB. At each duty station, she was involved in a variety of organization activities and was a mentor to younger families. In the summer of 1998, her husband retired from the Air Force and they settled in Woodbridge, VA

Looking for the sense of belonging that comes with the military lifestyle, she joined the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary in 2002. Sherry quickly became active and served as the 2nd Vice President where she was responsible for fundraising and was named as the “Lady of the Year” for the Auxiliary Unit. She subsequently served as 1 st Vice President where she was responsible for membership, and then the Unit President for the 1st of five separate terms of service. She has also been named the Auxiliary Lady of the
Year for the Department of Virginia in 2007-2008. She went on to serve as District President and Chairwomen of the Americanism committee for the Department of Virginia.

It’s obvious that Sherry has the fortitude and experience to be a tremendous support to LHCP as she steps into the position of Treasurer. Please be sure to send her a big welcome! You may reach her by email at [email protected].

Guardsman dies from injuries sustained in Afghanistan

The Associated Press

HARRISBURG, Pa. — A soldier has died in Texas from combat injuries he suffered in Afghanistan, the Pennsylvania Army National Guard announced Jan. 13.

Lt. Col. Richard J. Berrettini, 52, from Eldred, McKean County, died Jan. 11, nine days after the attack, which also killed an interpreter and South Carolina National Guard Sgt. Shawn F. Hill, 37, of Wellford, S.C.

Berrettini was scheduled to return home at the end of the month after a year in Afghanistan. A nurse practitioner, he had volunteered to serve in Afghanistan. In civilian life, Berrettini was a Port Allegany High School nurse.

He joined the Pennsylvania National Guard in 1984 and was a former active duty sailor.

“He was a very good man, very professional, somebody, they trusted,” said retired teacher Ron Caskey, a former colleague of Berrettini’s. “He was a confidante.”

Tony Flint, Port Allegany superintendent of schools, said Berrettini had been an elementary school nurse for seven years before becoming a nurse at the high school, where he also worked for seven years.

Berrettini, who died at Brooke Army Medical Center, is survived by his wife, Jane; mother, Doris; brother, Nello; and sons Vincent, 26, and Christopher, 22.

Vincent Berrettini is an Air Force Academy graduate and an Air Force pilot. Christopher Berrettini is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y.

Nurse Killed in Afghanistan Bombing

Pennsylvania school nurse had nearly finished tour of duty.

Author – Jennifer Moser

Army Lt. Col. Richard J. Berrettini
Army Lt. Col. Richard J. Berrettini

Lieutenant Colonel Richard J. Berrettini, RN, CRNP, 52, of the Army National Guard, died January 11 of injuries he sustained while serving at Camp Clark in Khowst, Afghanistan. Berrettini, of Eldred, Pennsylvania, was a school nurse in nearby Port Allegany. Injured in a roadside bombing January 2, Berrettini was flown to medical centers in Germany and then Texas, where he died.

“He just had a way about him that would put people at ease,” said Andrew Barrett, ANP-BC, a former coworker at the ED of Bradford Regional Medical Center in Bradford, Pennsylvania. Berrettini had a great sense of humor and great nursing skills, said Brian Benjamin, LPN, also of Bradford Regional. Asked for his favorite memory of Berrettini, Benjamin sighed. “I only have about a million of them,” he said.

Berrettini spent 15 years as a school nurse in elementary and high schools. In Afghanistan, he cared for Camp Clark personnel and for Afghan citizens, especially children. He had nearly completed his one-year tour of duty when he was injured; two others died and one other was injured in the blast. Berrettini is survived by his wife and two grown sons.

Captain David J. McDill, who served with Berrettini at Camp Clark, said, “He hated me saluting him, but I did it because it’s a sign of respect. And he earned mine.
