My name is Bobby Skerry and along with my wife Kathy I am participating in the 2019 Run to Home Base this July. When I first met Kathy in 1991, her brother Bob was serving in Desert Storm. She shared his address with those willing to send letters to him in those days before social media. Through writing, Bob and I bonded over our love of music. I finally met him at his welcome home party and we became friends and eventually brothers-in-law. I remember the struggles that Kathy and her family went through while Bob was deployed. God and prayers got them through his deployment and brought Bob home safe. Not all families are as lucky as they were. For this reason I ask for your donation to help me reach my goal and to help the Red Sox Foundation continue to support veterans.
