My name is Chuck Fountain, and for those of you that don't know me well, I was a member of an US Army Special Operations unit for over 5 years back in the late 80's and early 90's. It was a defining time in my life, and as proud as I am of that, my greatest accomplishment and treasure in life is my two kids that I have with my wife Trina.
It recently came to my attention that a Special Operations soldier needs our help in his quest to have children with his wife. Because of his job, this hero needs to remain anonymous, so I will just call him David. A fellow soldier came to me to see if I could help David "“ he isn't the kind of guy to ask for help. I set up a meeting with David to confirm what I had heard. This is what I have to report to you:
David has been in the Army and assigned to a Special Operations unit for 14 years, and has deployed 12 times during the War on Terror. David and his wife have tried to have their own child for over 8 years. At one point, they were approved for the adoption process and adopted two children. David and his wife raised these children as their own for seven months, until suddenly the biological parents had a change of heart and a judge took away David's kids.
Needless to say, David and his wife were crushed and do not want to go the adoption route again. They have found a great place for in vitro fertilization in the DC area. They worked diligently to save the money needed for the procedure and were told that their lodging and travel expenses would be covered. After making all of the planning so that the procedure could be done between his deployments, David has been told that they will have to come up with all of the travel, lodging, and meals for the 25 day procedure. Originally, I wanted to raise around $5,000.00 to cover the lodging and travel expenses, but my real goal is to raise $25,000.00 to cover the entire expense.
I want to raise the money to help out this hero, and I am asking for your help. Thank you for taking the time to hear my plea, and I ask you to please donate no matter the amount. In addition, I ask you to please share this with your friends and contacts.
