We're unbelievably soo close friends and family! Would love to exceed our goal to cover GoFundMe fees so the men can have the full $12,000!! Today is the day. Let's do it!
We are at 95%, this is amazingg!! Can we reach our goal by the evening? All $12,000? How awesome would that be!?
Shout out to all our donors to have served/serving or have a family members active/served. We tip our hats to you! Thank you for such bravery!
Jimmy Thornhill and others, so sorry I can't respond to you directly. Unfortunately, the only page we have set up for donation for the two Marines is through the GoFundMe site and they have their own secured pay source. I can assure you everything is trustworthy and the money goes straight to Cpl. Adam Resseguie and Cpl. Ryan Glass :) Thanks for your support!
Sorry for the constant updates, just beyond thankful for each and every one of you!
Thank you to our second $1,000 donor. Carleton Stein, you are something else!
I know we are taking moments to support and thank our amazing two Marines!
Cpl. Adam Resseguie and Cpl. Ryan Glass want to take a moment and do the same for you all! The past hour's donation left them speechless. They do what they do for people like you. Many thanks are given!

Wow, thank you all for supporting within our first half hour in! Just in awe.
Adam Resseguie is a high school friend of mine and has been so gracious to always care for others no matter where he is in the world. He has dedicated his life and soul to protecting our nation for years! When asking to start a fundraiser to help replace his stolen items, when he was deployed, he replied back, "Don't be silly, there are much bigger things going on in the world." With his humble response, I am even more determined to push for all of us to come together to properly welcome home Cpl. Adam Resseguie and Cpl. Ryan Glass! Any donation is beyond appreciated and is going straight to our two Marines! Thank you so much everyone :)
NBC Chicago writes:
"The Marine Scout Sniper returned from Afghanistan on Memorial Day weekend to learn that thousands of dollars worth of his belongings were missing from a North Carolina home where he had them stored.
While the two were gone they asked a neighbor to look after the home and their belongings. During their time abroad, the two were notified by the neighbor that the home was ransacked and several of their belongings taken.
Resseguie, who plans to move to Colorado to attend college in the fall, returned to North Carolina Memorial Day weekend to find that his television, bike, fishing gear and a number of weapons were missing.
Glass, who had returned shortly before, said two guns given to him by his grandfather, much of his furniture, video games, DVDs, military gear and two TVs were also taken from his home.
The two estimated the total value of the stolen items to be more than $10,000.
“It just sucked to come home to,” Resseguie said."Click here
