YPD returned stolen bike of fallen soldier’s daughter!

From the Facebook post of Yelm City Council Member Brian G. Hess:

“Thank you to our Yelm Police Department for bringing joy to a local Gold Star Family. The little girl [Mariah] had her bicycle recently stolen and our Police department stepped up and made her birthday a little more special.”

From the Facebook post of Sonia Wengelewski:

“So this happened today [April 28]. Thank you City of Yelm Police Department. You sure did make My Girl smile today!

“Back story: Someone decided to steal her bike on Easter. The bike she bought with the money she got from A Soldiers Child Foundation. (A gift from her daddy) so she was super sad about it!

“But today changed everything! She is one happy girl again!!! Thanks again Yelm police department!

About A Soldiers Child Foundation:

“A Soldier’s Child (ASC) Foundation was founded by Daryl J.W. Mackin after his neighbors lost their son, Marine Staff Sergeant Marcus Golczynski in Iraq on March 27, 2007. Many families of our fallen ask “did it matter and does anybody even care.”  Marcus wrote this in a letter to his family and friends before he was killed on the battlefield; “Stand beside us, because we would do it for you.” How do we do that now that they are gone? Care for their children that have been left behind.”
