The immense support for Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan has inspired local businesses in particular to step up to assist the community during this difficult time.
Springfield College has made the Reed Residence Hall on campus available for marines to stay, free of charge. Also, the Peter Pan Bus Company has offered up four buses to be used for the funeral arrangements.
"Mr. Picknelly and the whole Peter Pan family are very saddened by that event. We have donated 4 buses for the funeral and whatever needs after the funeral that they would need," says John Shecrallah, Senior Director of Transportation & Resource Management.
In Sgt. Thomas Sullivan's honor, a special message has been written on buses and signs on 91 Northbound.
