Help Out A Marine In Houston

Hello everyone. Thank you in advance for reading over this sincere call for help. My name is Aaron Chapman and I reside with my family in Plymouth, MI. I am starting this fundraiser campaign to assist a disabled Marine veteran I have known personally since 2004, during my own time enlisted. His name is Ernesto Galarza and is a friend on my Facebook page.
While enlisted, Ernesto served as an “amtracker” or amphibious vehicle operator. Ernesto is a family man, an outstanding friend, and would do anything for those he cares about.

He lives in close proximity to Houston, TX, in the town of Humble where Hurricane Harvey has devastated the area and water had to be allowed out of the dams.
Currently, he is staying in a hotel with his family.

He was paying to buy a house for his family but that house was terribly damaged by flooding. Nearly everything he owned was destroyed as a result of the flooding damage, to include his vehicle.  This fundraiser is help secure a vehicle for Ernesto to get back to his job as soon as possible.

Working again to help provide for his son is of utmost importance to Ernesto. Once the campaign is ended, Ernesto will receive the money directly through GoFundMe. I appreciate your time in reading this and hopefully everyone can give a little something to this cause or spread the word about it.
