Tuesday Update on Josh Wege (Oct. 20, 2009)

Jessi Wege took the following video of her brother, Josh, on Sunday, Oct. 18, 2009 before the Wege family headed back to Wisconsin from visiting him at Bethesda Naval Hospital.

WBAY Channel 2 (Green Bay, WI) ran a fourth (?) story on Josh on the 10 PM news last night and used Jessi's footage and other pictures of Josh. "Marine Sends Message to Hometown"

The Fond du Lac Reporter featured Josh on the front page Monday, Oct. 19, 2009 in the article "Wounded Marine taking it one day at a time"


CULVERS by FESTIVAL FOODS in Fond du Lac (969 E. Johnson St.), will have a benefit for Josh Wege all day on Sunday, Oct. 25th from 10 AM to 10 PM.  A portion of the entire day's sales will be contributed to the fund set up for Josh. A Marine mannequin will be the collection point for cash or check donations for those wishing to give directly to the fund.  Marine recuiters from the local office (same ones that Josh worked with) will be at the doors during the lunch and supper meal periods in dress uniform.

A benefit for Josh Wege will be held Oct. 31 at BRANSON'S BBQ, 525 N. Peters Ave. The event will be held from 4 p.m. to close. Food will be served until 9:30 p.m. Branson’s is donated 25 percent of its total food and drink sales. Persons wearing a Halloween costume will get $5 worth of raffle tickets.

A fund has been established to help the Wege family with expenses they will face, including travel, as Josh recovers from his wounds. The Josh Wege Fund has been established by friends at Trinity Lutheran Church in Dundee. Checks may be made to Trinity Lutheran (with Wege on the memo line) and sent to Trinity Lutheran, W2011 County Trunk F, Campbellsport, Wis. 53010.
