Help a National Guard Soldier in need!

My friend Chad Parson's lost his business today to a horrible tragety.  A large hillside, which was located behind his business, gave way due to all the recent rain and snow we have been having and destroyed his building causing him to lose almost everything. Mud and rocks slid into his business destroying multiple antique cars, motorcycles and ATV's belonging to his clients.  His insurance is not going to cover his losses due to it being "an act of God". 

Chad serves in the WV National Guard with me and is a TSgt in the Air National Guard, a great father and husband, and a great friend.  You never see him without a smile on his face and is always willing to help you with whatever you need.  He is an avid lover of cars and motorcycles and over the last 7 months has built his business, Pins and Rods, to enjoy his passion until it was destroyed today. 

I know of nobody more deserving of your help.  Whatever you can give to help him in his time of need, I know that he will really appreciate it.  Even if you can only give a dollar, it's better than nothing at all.  If you can't give at all, I understand but please I ask that you share this on your wall.  Below is a link to the news story covering his tragic loss and some photos of him and his wife and kids, as well as the damage to his business.
