PBYR Assists a Deployed Service Member with a Move to a new Home

PBYR Assists a Deployed Service Member with a Move to a new Home

In September,  2017 a service member from Plymouth was deployed  right before the family’s scheduled  move to a new home.  PBYR was contacted and paid for support from a local moving company to assist the service member’s wife and 2 young children with the move.  All went well and we wish them health and happiness in their new home!!
