World War II Veteran Needs Our Help

My fellow veteran, Joe, is need of our support. Let's make sure I make one thing clear, I'm a veteran and Joe is a hero. Joe camped out on Utah beach during WWII with bombs falling around him, he carried vital records through mine fields, and he sweat and bled for our country - for our freedom. 

Joe is 93 and his lovely wife Lucy is around 98. Joe just sold his home, which he's lived in since it was built in 1971. I'll do the math for you, that's 47-years. He's moving to assisted living, but due to his mortgage structure he is netting zero on the sale of his home.

I'm looking first to fellow veterans to come to our boy's rescue. I'm looking next to fellow citizens who understand the sacrifice this man has made and to lend a hand. I'm looking for anyone who can give $5 or $10 to help this man out - this man who gave so much for us.

Joe isn't asking for this, because Joe wouldn't ask for it. But when we see a man down and in need we do what has to be done because it's the right thing to do.

Can you please come together with me, especially over this 4th of July, to help out our World War II Veteran, Joe? Let's show him there are people out there who understand and care and are willing to help pick this guy up and carry him for a while with financial support. 

This support will be used for food and general expenses, and for his assisted living cost. Let's pick him up, let's do this!

Much love and respect in advance for your support.


Respectfully,

Joe VanOosterhout
