The Sergeant Tyler Vargas-Andrews Family Fund


Sergeant Tyler Vargas-Andrews of Folsom California, was struck by the IED blast at the Kabul Airport in Afghanistan on August 26th, 2021. Currently his wounds are extensive and will alter the course of his life forever. As of now, he is stable. As of now, there shouldn’t be any further taking of his limbs or body to ensure his survival. Sergeant Vargas-Andrews is a warrior. He’s our brother. He’s a son. He’s a United States Marine that willingly almost paid the ultimate sacrifice so that others too may have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

In compliance with the GoFund me policies I am required to place the following information.

1. Who you are and where you are from:

My name is Charles Schilling and I am from Port Angeles, Washington.

2. Your relationship to the parties you're raising funds for:

-I serve as the Team Leader for Sergeant Vargas-Andrews Scout Sniper Team for the duration of his deployment to the Middle East, and while in Afghanistan.

3. Your plan to send the funds to the intended recipients, and their names:

-My plan is to send all funds to Sergeant Vargas-Andrews’s mother, Tiffany, and giver her direct control of all funds.

4. How the funds will be spent (be specific as possible):

-These funds will be used for any medical expenses that are extensive and not covered by the US military, any lodging or logistical requirements for Tyler and his family for the duration of his healing process, for the best rehabilitation and prosthetics we can get him, and for the over all care of him and his families in any monitory fashion.

We humbly ask, that you may help to donate any small amount of money for Sergeant Vargas-Andrews. This money will be used for him and his family so that they all will have the utmost support possible, and hopefully with your help, carry no burden of the financial cost. It should quite literally be the last thing any of them worry about.

We take care of our own. This also means their families. Again any small amount helps.

Thank you
