Sgt Rob Richards Memorial Fund
After being wounded during his second tour in Afghanistan where Rob survived an emergency tracheotomy following strapnel hitting his throat, and nearly losing a leg, there were many people and organizations who helped the Richards', enabling him to again deploy to combat in hot pursuit of the enemy.
The wake of his death has left many astounded, searching for reason as well as ways to help. While we may never know the reasons behind this great loss, or how to ease the pain that is left for those who remain, we can keep alive the legacy Rob left behind and give back to those who gave to him. At the request of his loving wife, Raechel, a memorial fund is being set up to contribute to causes that were dear to Rob.
This GoFundMe site has been designed to aid in the tumultuous time his passing brings and to give back to those organizations that give so greatly to our warriors.
