Olav Bryant Smith Family Relief

Olav Bryant Smith and his wife, Tara, have lost their home in the Camp Fire devastation of Paradise, California. Thankfully, Olav, Tara, and their children all made it to safety and have a place to stay for now. Although they have insurance--and government assistance will eventually be forthcoming--they have lost everything that couldn't fit into their car, and I am sure they have immediate needs and long-term expenses that will not be covered by insurance or assistance. Let's raise $10,000 as a start to help Olav and Tara to meet immediate needs and build a bridge their family's recovery from this horrific disaster.  --Terry Quist, Olav's basic training buddy, Isnardi's Third Herd, Fort Benning, Georgia, 1985
