Born to Serve

Marine Gunnery Sergeants Daniel Draher, Joshua Negron, and Navy Chief Petty Officer Eric Gilmet were born to serve their country and fellow man. And now, after a life of service and trying to save the life of the man that attacked them, they are fighting for their own lives. 

The three decorated warriors with impeccable service records were physically assaulted by a drunken civilian contractor when they were deployed with the Special Operations Task Force North in Erbil, Kurdistan.

Despite their sole intention to help the man that attacked them, and despite incontrovertible video evidence exonerating them, they now face wrongful criminal charges due to mishandling of facts by their Commanders and military justice officials. 

Removed from their positions, security clearances revoked, pay and promotions on hold, defamed in official communications, supporters pressured to stay silent, their case was expedited to a General Court Martial with charges of manslaughter. Now these honorable men are incurring major expenses as they fight to clear their names. The futures of their families and kids hang in the balance. 

They need our help so they can fund their legal and public defense and still be able to provide for their families and fund their childrens’ education. They were born to serve and have been fighting for us their whole lives. Now it’s time for us to fight for them and contribute whatever we can afford.
