SGT Willie Cook Trust Fund
My Brother SGT Willie Cook was gunned downed in East Chicago, IN on February 2, 2013 while visiting our grandmother. He recently returned from Afghanistan in September 2012 after serving a year with the 713th EN CO out of Valparaiso, IN. My Brother's car was shot 15 times. My Brother SGT Cook was found with his seat belt unbuckled coving his son. At the point of gun fire he chose to shield his son, rather than flee. It is because of this action his son is here and how he received the one fatal round, of 15 shots fired total, to the "back" of his head. He was a "Hero to the end."
The Army is giving a lot of support, but his children, especially his son Antoine (who was wounded in the gun fire) need a lot of support. This website is for SGT Cook's Children and the mothers to help provide in this time of need. All moneys will go first to the Funeral, then Medical bills, then to the children and mothers.

I may not know what this feels like, nor do I wish too, but I do know what love for your child and family feels like. So many people can't claim to be good parents or decent souls. Your brother was a true father and more. Dont let the pain crush you, take hold of the love he had for his child and hold true to what he felt in his heart. A hero and a warrior to be truly missed.
God bless you all. Sending payers for healing comfort and justice.
