My brother is the greatest man you'd ever be lucky to know. He's an amazing brother; he raised us, taught me everything I needed to know growing up. Our dad died and mom always worked. This guy has always worked since he was knee high.
He joined the army at 17 right after 9/11, did 3 tours Infantry! He's seen the worst of humanity, survived it and came home 8 years later. He was shot, his motorcade was blown up and Still came home! This guy is a Beast!
He's also an Amazing father. He has 3 amazing kids ages 16, 13, & 3.
He got married again to the love of his life and just brought another beautiful baby boy into this world just 6 weeks ago, making 4 awesome kids.
David has never ever stopped working not once, never been a bum, never asked for hand outs from the government, despite being a disabled Vet. When I say he's a beast, I mean it!
2016 brought many blessings, but with that came some hardships.
In the last 4 weeks he was in 2 car accidents. The first, he was rear ended by a Mustang (on her cell phone) totaling his Truck and more importantly, crushing his neck. His discs in his c spine are all ruptured and herniated. He is awaiting surgery. Among other things he had to scramble to get another vehicle for his family. He did and 2 weeks later was again hit!
He Never complains, despite being in pain. He still provides for his family.
Which brings me to last night 1/2/17
David was asked for a ride by a friend. Of course he obliged because he's that friend who gives. Last night when he dropped of his friend to an apartment, he was ambushed by an unknown pos criminal. This pos put a gun to my brother's head and pulled the trigger! By God's grace the first shot didn't go off, he turned to run. The pos gunman then unloaded his gun, hitting my brother 4 times!
This is real. This happened to my brother, the greatest man I have ever known..
When I got the call I drove straight to him. I found my brother with bullet holes in his arm, shoulder, the middle of his chest and worst his face. He was covered head to toe in the darkest blood I have ever seen.
The er doctors all said he was the luckiest man there. The police, the detectives, the staff all said it was a miracle he was not only alive but talking.
There is no reason he should be alive right now but he is because he's a freaking beast! Because God willed him! Because if The war couldn't kill him, no pos on the east side could!
This should have been a homicide, but thank God it wasn't. It doesn't change the facts. After a tough night in ICU, My brother pulled through and will now be in recovery. He's had facial reconstruction, he's got bullet holes thru his body that should've killed him. To say he's had a bad string of luck would be a colossal understatement.
My brother deserves So much more than this! He would never ask for anything. Never. But fact is he has 4 beautiful children and a wife to take care of, and I know him, he'll be trying to goto work as soon as he can.
I humbly ask for any help for my brother. He has cared for me in the same manor he's cared for his children. He would fight fiercely to be with his family the same way he did for his country, for every one of us. Please help this soldier, father, husband and son. Anything you can, please share this campaign, please let his voice be heard.
Thank you all

David was rushed to the ER last night. In a matter of hours what seemed like a small bruise quickly formed into a giant dark mass under his left peck. He had blood pooling in his chest. The Dr's at the VA hospital quickly took him back and sent him for tests. (Anyone who knows the va knows they drag their feet)
It was determined that while rare and super quick to form, he would be ok. He was released early this morning.

David is doing his best to take it easy, something he doesn't know how to do..
His belongings, truck (uses for his work) and all his work tools are still in police custody. After my brother was shot he attempted to drive, later collapsing.
His face is starting to heal, and his body is still battered but he's not complaining. We're hoping he'll be better looking than before lol, kidding. He looks 100x better than when I first saw him, thank God. Its the beginning of the month & i know David is so anxious to get back to work to provide for his family, he never quits this guy. Please continue to SHARE His story, any help and mostly praying for justice for David and his family!
Looking better

We've had many great people just flooding my brother with love, we are so grateful. David's at home with his family, thanks be to God! He's hurting though he's not complaining one bit of course. Doing his best to rest (something he doesn't know how to do)
I know he's so grateful and so blessed to have such great friends and amazing people (some that don't even know him) sending him love and positive thoughts&prayers.
We're still waiting to find out any updates on the investigation. Staying positive and praying the police track down this disgusting excuse for a human who tried to orphan my nephews & niece.
We will have justice for my Brother!
Thank you again for your kindness and love for our family! Thank you for your continued prayers for David & his family. Truly.
