Operation Hug-A-Hero, a non-profit organization that provides “Daddy Dolls” to children of deploying troops, offered free “Daddy Dolls” to the three children of Staff Sgt. Brown. He was killed earlier this month a week after arriving in Afghanistan on his fourth deployment.
Hug-A-Hero executive director Lisa Berg reached out after hearing Ariell Taylor-Brown learned on Facebook that her husband had been killed two hours before Army officers arrives with official notice.
Lisa wrote in the comments:
Operation Hug-A-Hero would like to help this family by providing dolls to her children. This is so sad and devastating. It should have never happened this way.
Operation Hug-A-Hero holds fund-raisers to cover the cost of providing the dolls to military children.
