26 Oct 2008:
Shooting victim served in Iraq

SARASOTA - Delvis Fernandez served eight months with the Marine Reserves in Iraq, often manning a 50-caliber gun on the lead car in dangerous supply convoys.

The 2005 Booker High School graduate returned home to Sarasota in April, where he rejoined his minor league football team and enrolled in classes to prepare for a career in the Sarasota Police Department.

But on his way home from class Friday afternoon, Fernandez, 21, was shot and killed in what police believe was a carjacking in the parking lot of a Newtown convenience store.

"It was in broad daylight for no apparent reason," said Orlando Pacheco, who roomed with Fernandez in Iraq. "We're just in shock right now. It was just like any other day."

Fernandez died at Sarasota Memorial Hospital on Friday, the day before the final tryouts for the Sarasota Millionaires, a football team that he also used as a conduit to to volunteer in the community.

Police issued a first-degree murder arrest warrant Saturday afternoon for Deandre Tunstall, 18, who was on probation.

Tunstall was arrested in February in connection with another shooting, but he was only convicted of robbery.

Police on Saturday arrested Tunstall's mother, Rose Mary Salem, 41, on a charge of helping her son commit murder.

She drove Tunstall to the Star Mini-Mart, 2950 N. Washington Blvd., just before the shooting at 3:10 p.m., police said.

Salem remained in the Sarasota County Jail on $100,000 bond, while Tunstall remained at large Saturday evening.

Fernandez passed on offers from other police agencies to try to work in Sarasota and stay with his mother, who was his role model for coming to the area from Cuba when he was 7 years old and providing for her three children.

"He was one of those kids who was just an overachiever," said Sarasota Police Capt. Lucius Bonner, who coached Fernandez on Booker's football team. "He had a great work ethic, he was always looking to help other teammates."

Bonner said he felt numb when heard about the shooting.

"It's so senseless. I don't know what to think," Bonner said. "He was bilingual. He would have been a tremendous asset to not only the Police Department, but to the community."

Fernandez got the nickname "White Chocolate" because "he was so cool with the African-American community," said Millionaires co-owner Bethsaida Williams.

"We just had a team meeting on Tuesday; he was so ready for the season," Williams said. "He was so adamant with football. He'd say, 'Mom, when I make it, I'm going to buy you this ... all those dreams."

Fernandez gave back to the community every chance he could, Williams said. The players showed up to tryouts Saturday night just blocks from the scene of the shooting.

After playing with the team its inaugural year, Fernandez had to miss the second season to go to Iraq.

The team put together a highlight film for Fernandez, Williams said.

"At the end, when you do all your credits, we put on, 'We love you Delvis, come home safe.'"

We are blessed to have electricity and running water.

110 is the electricity used in our cans. We dont need any food because our chow hall is very good

Yes we do have a laundry service

We dont have a microwave but we do have a refrigerator.

I am the squad leader for 1 squad in our platoon.

We dont have any female soldiers.

Our Px lacks in providing us with cold weather gear. Any cold weather gear will be greatly appreciated. gloves, handwarmers, beanies, sweaters. They must be dark green or black. Our platoon has a game room where the soldiers can go and relax. The only problem is that we lack in entertainment materials. I personally purchased an Xbox-360 so that they could enjoy a little bit of gaming but our Px cant seem to provides us with any fun games. Medal of Honor, Call of duty, Madden 2006 and up. Any sports game would be good since we all love sports. We understand that this is a want and not a need. Please help us as much as possible.

My unit is from Orlando mixed in with New Jersey. My squad and i sit down and enjoy a good game of football but we love to actually play it better. We are a bunch of hard working individuals. We were informed about this website from a friend who you are currently supporting and we decided to try our luck.

Thanks for all your help and we hope to hear from you soon.

IMPORTANT! DO NOT PRINT THIS PAGE!!!

Why? Because this list changes all the time due to unit movements, soldier transfers, or even soldier casualties.
It is also illegal. ALL content on this site is copyright Any Soldier Inc.
DO NOT send any letter or package to a soldier's address unless you check this web site the same day you mail your packages.
Please do not burden the soldiers or the APO/FPO by sending things when the soldiers are gone. If a soldier is not listed here anymore then that soldier's address is expired. Check here often!

Note that some of the units do not have ranks shown on their addresses.
This is done at the unit's request, but ALL of our contacts ARE Servicemembers.

Be sure to change the "ATTN" line to "ATTN: Any Female Soldier if your package is for a female!

DO NOT use this program if you expect or require a reply!
DO NOT expect, or require, a reply from a Soldier!
A supporter said it perfectly, "I mean, these guys and gals have other things on their minds, y’know? Like...oh, STAYING ALIVE?"


(NOTE *): Effective 1 May 2006 this web site added a major layer of security to our contacts' information. This change is necessary to protect our troops and ensure that Any Soldier will continue to operate.
The ONLY changes are that the addresses of our contacts are now hidden and the number of addresses you can get are limited. You may obtain addresses simply by clicking on the link provided and correctly filling out the form, the address will then be emailed to you immediately.

(NOTE **): The number shown is how many times a form was submitted requesting this address. This does NOT necessarily mean that this contact will be helped by that many folks. Rule of thumb is that anything 5 requests or less may in fact be no support at all. No way to tell exactly unless the contact lets you know in his/her update how much support they are getting.

(Note 1.): Note that postage to APO AE and FPO AE (E = Europe) is only to NY where the connection to the APO/FPO (APO = Army Post Office)(FPO = Fleet Post Office) is, or to San Francisco for APO AP and FPO AP (P = Pacific), so you don't pay postage all the way to Iraq/Afghanistan. You might consider picking contacts closer to your mailing area to help cut the cost of mailing. If you live on the East Coast, pick "AE", West Coast, pick "AP", Midwest, well...uh, Thank You for your Support! ;)

New with us (December 2005) you might notice "APO AA" and "FPO AA". This is for units in the Caribbean/South America. Normally. However, due to the nature of some units they may be in Iraq but have an address showing "FPO AA". Mail addresses to "AA" goes out of Miami, Florida.

(Note 2.): Why are military addresses weird? There isn't a street address or city. What gives? Correct, just about everything about the military is weird to civilians. Military units are very mobile, they move around a lot, often they even become part of another unit. The APO (Army Post Office) and FPO (Fleet Post Office) assign APO and FPO numbers as needed, they are NOT static. An APO/FPO number may be for a large unit, or a location. An APO/FPO number for Baghdad today may be for Frankfurt tomorrow.

(Note 3.): The "Expect to not mail past" date is only an approximate and is one of the least reliable things on this web site. It is because of this that you must check often before you send anything to this unit. There are a few reasons this date is not reliable, to include: it IS the Military, we ARE dealing with the APO/FPO/DPO. The only thing that does not change in the military is that things will change. PLEASE NOTE that a Contact is dropped off our active list 30 days PRIOR to their date leaving to help avoid mail bouncing.

(Note 4.): (Removed for OPSEC reasons)

(Note 5.): The lines, "Contact with approx number of Soldiers:" and "Approx how may Female Soldiers:" have NOTHING to do with unit strength. They are approximately how many other Troops the Contacts believe they can get packages to. This helps you understand that you should not send 100 packages to someone who only deals with 10 Troops.
Don't forget that if your package is for a female Soldier, be sure to change "ATTN: Any Soldier®" to "ATTN: Any Female Soldier".

( Note 6.): This is simply where the unit this contact is from. This is NOT a true picture of the folks in the unit as most all units are made up of folks from all over the United States.) A "Composite Unit" is one made up of other units and is usually temporary for a particular mission.

( Note 7.): Updated APO/FPO/DPO mailing restrictions> courtesy of Oconus.com (gone now) (Note: About Restriction "U2": "U2 - Limited to First Class Letters", Box "R" is for retired personnel that live overseas and are still authorized an APO/FPO box. Their address will be something like Box 3345R. Doubt you will see anything like that in Afghanistan or Iraq or ...)(Please Note: Sometime in August 2013, Oconus.com changed the code on their page and our form doesn't work with them anymore, so a link to their page is the best we can do, sorry.)
