I'm sorry not to be able to donate to your cause in monetary fashion, all I have to give this year is a few words. My husband is also a disabled Veteran and we were tossed in to the VA web just a few short months ago. I understand just how lean times are for so many of us "new generation" Veteran families. Christmas will be small this year and dinner a little smaller than usual, but the Military taught us to be strong and resilient, to lean on our community when we needed them. We do still have a community, though we are spread far and wide. Things WILL get better, and we will survive. I hope the help all these amazing people were able to share will give you a night of sound sleep, a little peace in the storm. God Bless You, Merry Christmas, and THANK YOU!!

This is awesome, to see all these people willing to help out . Its great to see that people care. When I made my donation the goal was 2500 the total raised is now well over 6000. This is what the season is about. I wish that I could help more but Its good to see that others are willing to help during a fellow veterans time of need.

I also posted this on Homefront Heros page so I am praying they will also help out This is such a sad story NONE of our vets should have to worry about the pay they have more than earned and none of them should have to cancel a childs Xmas because someone doesn't feel like doing the right paperwork Good Luck with getting it sorted and I truly hope it all works out for you and your family soon

Merry Christmas. Hopefully you get some extra for your kids to get presents. Hopefully there is some way to give a mailing address out because I'm pretty sure people would love to give your little girl some presents too.

This story shall the good man teach his son; And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by, From this day to the ending of the world, But we in it shall be remember'd; We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition: And gentlemen in England now a-bed Shall think themselves accursed they were not here, And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day. -- Shakespeare's Henry V, 1598 Thank you for your service and sacrifice. You are not forgotten. May you and your family find a peace this Christmas that surpasses all human understanding. God Bless
