Support David As He Recovers!
My name is Ashley and I am David Palmer's sister. As most of you know, David was attacked during the Charlotte Riots on Wednesday night (September 21st). He had gotten separated from the group as things started to get serious and in his efforts to get back home he was jumped by 10 men that were attacking multiple victums and looting serveral businesses around the Epicentre. They stole his phone and caused bodily injuries, not to mention the mental toll that it has taken. This is David's first year as a civilian after serving 7 years in the United States Army and also serving oversea's. Not knowing how to adjust, he got a job as a barback at a local bar making quick cash until he starts school in the Spring. Needless to say, he is out of work and won't be able to make money to pay his monthly bills for awhile. He has been to 3 different doctors and will be undergoing surgery on Monday. He has a fractued eye socket and multiple broken bones in his face. The specialists told us to imagine dropping a dinner plate from above your head..."that's what the inside of your face looks like right now." If anyone can donate to help David out as he recovers from surgery and gets back on his feet it would be greatly appreciated. All of the calls, texts, and messages have meant so much. My little brother is my rock and seeing him go through such an awful situation is heart breaking. I knew I couldn't protect him while he was in Afghanistan, but never did I worry about our own streets. If I could cover everything myself I would, but now we have to reach out to you guys. I thank you in advance for your love and support, and David and our family does as well! Thank you Thank you, and much love!!
