HELLO everyone we really appreciate everyones support from around the world. unfortunately this publicity has all brought some sick indvidual. police are in process of tracking her down through the many fake facebook an other accounts she has . ANYTIME ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE HOSPITAL REPORTS OR DOCTORS REPORTS IS WELCOME TO SET AN APPOINTMENT UP WITH US AT ONE OF THE HOSPITALS OR DOCTORS OFFICES AND REVIEW THE INFORMATION YOURSELF. this sick individual has most recently used Cindy Ann as an ID on Facebook an it was shut down immediately by Facebook for being a fake account an the person doesnt exist. we believe is is a stalker who my wife has a current restraining order on who had threatened my wife in past an repeatedly keeps breaking the restraining order. The police are involved now an are actively pursuing.
She is jealous of my wife an for us having a beautiful daughter, an that i would never cheat on my wife. she is a very sick person mentally an please let the police handle this. we appreciate everyones offer of help to catch her. She is trying to discredit us with her lies. an cant believe she goes out of her way keep doing. we are not the only ones she has done this to an continues to do to. we hope she is caught soon an doesnt lead to physical attack by her again. last time wife was pregnant with our beautiful daughter. we are still short of our goals but are getting closer each hour thanks to you all an the support we are recieving around the world. anytime an anyplace anyone woud like to review the hospitals an doctors office reports we are more than glad, or to see the legder we have made to keep track of all expenses an what has been paid on already please feel free to message me or my wife an we will make arrangement so you may review an see for yourself this is all legitimate. I have my dd214 as well of a medical review report of the injuries an awards i have recieved in past in military. we are trying to get the funds raised to get the medical an other expenses. yesterday mitsubishi dealership i on nova presented us with a car to assist us. we are ever so grateful. an are humbled by the overwhelming support we are recieving from everyone. We love you all. in between doctors appointments an an will update more an let you all know some of the things the money is being used or plan to use. an to update you on my medical.

today was Sunday, ok well now Monday at 1a.m. too much pain to sleep even with a prescribed pain killer an sleeping pill. so i figured id give you all an update. Mitsubishi dealership in Daytona Beach is giving us a car tomorrow an was told an all we need to do is make arrangements for car insurance. the dealership is on Nova near mason ave. we are going to find out Monday what kind of car. which we will pick up in a few days later. we are so thankful for this unbelivable act of Kindness an are flabergasted by their generosity. Todd a Sales manager their had contacted me on behalf of a wonderful kind hearted lady Brenda keith. The extra hours a day an allow me not to have to rely on rides, catch a bus an hour before only to arrive 50 minutes before my appnt an have to wait for appnt with a screaming baby in tow an what seems like a moving truck full of stuff for the baby or heavy bag full of medical machines weighing what seems like a ton when your carrying around. But mostly it will allow me to see the specialist that might be outside the county or on the other side of. the county. as well as grocery shop. My wife is my hero for putting up with my medical needs an our daughter Symphony Rose. somedays going with just her an the baby to do errands alone because of my health. an hope pray each day i am worthy of their affection.an can teach by example to my daughter, friends, family kids in the neighborhood,an hope to be able to pamper my wife one day for everything she does for us . thank-you to you all enough can not be said enough on our behalf for all the things everyone is doing an helping us with or will be helping us with. we love you all please feel free to friend us but warning label sometimes it gets r rated on mine so im sorry but no minors will be friended please but please feel free to mssg us. due to the large volume of mssgs an im insisting on writing each an every one of you please be understanding it may be few days before i give a response to your generosity. thankyou this has gone global

we are in aw as to the world wide effect this has created an are ever so appreciative. we are trying to get info on how to get a service dog that will give me a warning of five to fifteen minutes. it will allow my wife to return to work an allow me more time with my best medicine , our daughter. by having the extra time givin by a service dog , it will allow me enough time to contact somebody to take care of our beautiful daughter Symphony Rose while i can get to a safe padded location to contain damage caused by my seizures. or to seek medical assistance. In past my seizures have caused me to have broken bones, contusions requiring stitches bruises an soft tissue damage.
i have a motorized wheelchair that no longer runs an needs a profesional to figure what is wrong so i may be able to get repaired so it works again an i can start using as soon as possible. an no longer contained to bed on days i cannot walk due to weather: cold or rain. an when i over use or pain an cramps or muscle spasms occur. at moment i am unable to use wheelchair unless i have someone to push me around on due to hand is broken an will need surgery.
we are also trying to save my eye due to the extreme damage im told i could very possible be blind in that eye unless surgery is done soon.
we are very thankful an if anybody has any knowledge of how or where to apply for an where a veteran can get assistance for please contact my facebook page.
lastly we are writing a short mssg to thank each of you personnely an would appreciate everyone to please send your name so we may thank each an every one of you. so please stop sending anonymously thankyou ever so much an from my family to yours.
God bless you all an thankyou for proving no good dead goes unrewarded an people can be good an kind hearted. there is hope for us afterall.

For those of you commenting on how he is a vet and gets free medical care, I have a few friends that are vets and it is almost impossible to get help or appointments. For example, I have a friend waited for an appointment for an eye exam for over six months, and let me tell you he wears bottle glasses, he finally gave up and went to one of those mall places. That, yes, is a minor thing but is just one example. The vet medical system is messed up. Also, he probably was using public transportation, but now with his new and multiple issues, a car would be a boon. These thugs beat the crap out of him. He was being a good person and it could have been much worse. He deserves applause and a leg up.

Thank you Mr Blough for running outside to try to stop these derelicts from hurting something innocent. It just happened to be a turtle. You saw something helpless and you didn't care what it was. You saw injustice. I commend you .. You are a rare person. I know that if someone didn't think twice about helping something in distress .. They wouldn't hesitate to help a human. May God bless you and your family! Thank you Mr Blough!!

Whoever said "all vets receive free medical help", Ummmmm, NO. You are partially correct, we can go to the VA, if they don't cancel our appointment...but THAT could be 3-6 month wait for Gary. I'm retired with TRICARE, still, I pay a LOT of money for co pays etc...and that is for a line of duty injury. Anyway, be quiet if you aren't here to help Gary. To Gary and your wife, please message me on Facebook. I can put you in touch with a fellow AMVET who is a Veteran Service Officer in Lee County, FLA. He can help you get connected with the right folks in Volusia County. Thank you.

Retired vets, get Tri-Care, but some Vets may have 3 years or 10 years in, they aren't retired, so they don't get health care at all. Disabled vets, will get healthcare. It still isn't free, Those vets that do get health care have co-pays also.

There is something a little skewed about the contribution, it shows 2 contributions of $3,000 each so the total should be well over $6,000 but i's showing just $5,417 as I write this.

Obviously him being attacked isn't service connected! Whatever VA disability compensation he gets has nothing to do with this. So yeah, he can go to the VA for care but he'd still have to come out of pocket for co pay or all of it because results of the attack aren't service connected injuries. I am a Marine Vet, by the way.
