Burial Expenses for Army Veteran

We are contacting you on behalf of my brother William Brooks a 56year old Honorably discharged Army Veteran. William was a very kind man who was diagnosed with PTSD from an accident which occurred while in service at West Point NY. He applied for a military pension on numerous occasions but was continuously denied. His most recent attempt to secure these benifits went unanswered by Senator Tim Kaine and unfortunately William passed away before receiving a positive answer. My brother, always a hard worker was unable to secure permanent employment or insurance due to this unfortunate condition. He was therefore unable to put money aside to plan for such an event. He leaves behind one son and many family members who have thus far contributed monies in the amount of $1175.00 We have a long way to go to be able to meet our Wednesday March 12th burial deadline. Too often this happens to our military. Our government welcomes them to protect and serve but tends to forget them and their families once they have completed their service. Our desire is to Honorably send William Home. We thank you, Our Fellow Americans in advance for your consideration and your support. Any amount you find in your heart to donate will be greatly appreciated.
God Bless You All
