Bring Bob-a-Lou Home for R&R

So many people have reached out to us while Bob has been stationed in Korea for the year, sending love and prayers, and beautiful care packages. And always, the notes say, "Liz and Bob, I WISH we could do more for your family..."

Perhaps now is your chance.

Bob has been deployed over 5 years in the course of his 13 years in the Army (not counting all months he's spent in the field).
This year in Korea is challenging on so many levels. He's away from his three kiddos. The cost of running two households on one income is... pressing.
And we have just been informed the Army will not send him home for R&R. They will grant leave, but they will not pay for his ticket home to see us, to re-charge all of our batteries. And the plane ticket STARTS at $1,200- $1,500 before fees and taxes.

For everyone who has wished they lived close enough to babysit for an afternoon or bring us dinner, perhaps you will be willing to donate $10 or $20 (or if your pockets are deep... I won't dampen your spirits by suggesting a sum) toward bringing this Daddy-O, this husband, this son, friend, and soldier home for a couple of weeks in February.

Thank you for loving us all these years.
