Efforts to help the family of Joe Piersante, a DEA agent wounded in Afghanistan last year while on a mission, is continuing.

Besides raising money through t-shirt sales,  people are being encouraged to contribute directly to the family by sending a check  to JFCU at the following address and endorsement for their contribution:

Justice Federal Credit Union, 5175 Parkstone Drive, Suite 200, Chantilly, VA 20151

Check should be made payable to: Joe Piersante Warrior Fund. Endorse Check “For Deposit” Account Number: 11000002132840.

The DEA said that Piersante was operating in Helmand Province Afghanistan on a counter-narcotics mission along with a combined task force of Afghan National Units along with Australian Special Operations Forces when he encountered Taliban insurgents.

Piersante was struck in the head with a 7.62 mm round, which penetrated his ballistic helmet, passed through both frontal lobes of his brain and caused severe trauma to both optical nerves.

The DEA says he has progressed and is home, but will need to undergo months of intensive rehabilitation.

Here’s how to get the t-shirt to help the family : Pre-Order Sale. Contact Randy Updegraff @ JPWarriorFund@comcast.net or a POC in your area to consolidate orders. Request payment in advance; checks made out to Randy Updegraff in order to better able to facilitate production of the shirts and gauge demand. Denote quantity and size in orders: (2XL, XL, L, M.)
