Charity Partner

Suffolk County Homefront, Inc. is a not for profit organization located in Suffolk County New York.  They are a group of volunteers who proudly live within Suffolk County and believe it is our civic duty to support the brave men and women of our military who also reside here.  Their support extends to the military units located within the county, the families of our service members and to our resident veterans.
Their mission includes, but is not limited to: purchasing supplies, equipment and care packages for our deployed service members, volunteering time at military sponsored events, and also recognizing the sacrifices of those who have died or been injured during combat.

Suffolk County Homefront, Inc. was created to honor the memory, sacrifice and heroism of Marine Cpl. Matthew V. Dillon, a family member killed in action on December 11, 2006.

Matthew had completed one tour of duty in Iraq in 2004 as a member of the South Carolina Army National Guard and was awarded a Purple Heart for wounds sustained during combat  in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.  In September 2006, Matthew returned to Iraq as a Marine, assigned to the Marine Wing Support Squadron 373 as a Military Policeman. He was selected as the fire team leader for the HAVOC II combat team. On December 11, 2006 in the Al Anbar Province, while engaged in battle with insurgents, the humvee Matt and his team were in was struck by an IED killing him and two fellow Marines.  For this, Cpl Dillon was awarded his second Purple Heart with a Gold Star.

Matthew was just short of his 26th birthday when he made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  His family and friends do not measure his life by the short time he was on this earth but by the quality of which he lived those years. In keeping with the spirit and patriotism of who Cpl Matthew Dillon was, this organization was created.  To honor Matthew and all veterans, Suffolk County Homefront strives to be successful in their mission to support the brave men and women of Suffolk County who are so valiantly serving our country and to uphold the honor of our Veterans.
