Hoagland family funeral

US Army Veteran (OIF and OEF) Dean Hoagland and his wife Katie lost their 2 year old son Jacob in a tragic accident on May 25. The Fayetteville Observer reports that, "...he left his house through a dog door without his parents’ knowledge and fell in an above-ground swimming pool...". (Below I have included the link for the press release)

We have been in contact with the family and they are doing as well as you can expect someone to do under the circumstances. Dean served his country honorably for close to 11 years before medically retiring.

He always put others first and would be the first to give you the shirt off his back. Dean would never ask for this, but with his and his wife's permission, we've started this GoFundMe to help ease their burden. Dean has a lot of people leaning on him right now, including his daughter, Jacob's little sister. We just want to give them one less thing to worry about.

Please donate if you can, and share. Keep the Hoagland family in your thoughts and prayers.

 Thank you and God bless!
