Screaming Eagles division totes Dacron pillows to Afghanistan
February 18, 2011,
"Most people don't realize that pillows aren't a government-issued item for certain troops on the front lines," said Brian Nix, segment manager for Invista's North America Fiberfill business. "When we found out that soldiers on the move often fall asleep wherever they can find a place to rest their heads, we knew we had to provide the assurance of comfort (in the form of Dacron brand fiberfill) to those deployed."
In collaboration with local U.S. military personnel and supportive organizations, such as Pillows for Patriots and Our Troops Online, the Dacron brand team delivered hundreds of branded, miniature pillows to American forces stationed in combat zones in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Dacron fiber quality seal endorses brands like Dacron Comforel fiberfill, Dacron Performa fiberfill, and Dacron DuraLife fiberfill.
