Upper Darby Supports the Army

101st Airborne Division insignia (the "Screaming Eagle").

When they found out there was a need, the boys of the Upper Darby High School lacrosse team stepped up their game for the 101st Airborne Division.

The Royals team had adopted the platoon as part of a Senior Graduation Project organized by nine players.

The four division members – Lt. Shiv Kumar, Staff Sgts. Nicole Adkins and Militza Guzman and Sgt. Eric Buterbaugh, – were joined by Staff Sgt. Charlene Purnell, who was home on leave visiting her mother in Philadelphia. They were welcomed Saturday at a reception at Drexel Hill Middle School by the team members, the Boosters Club and Upper Darby Superintendent Lou De Vlieger and Principal Chris Dormer.
