I would like to briefly break from my norm on here and ask a favor of you all that read my blog. A good friend of mine recently retired from the Army. Due to some complications with the department of veterans affairs it took longer than expected to get his retirement pay going. Because of this unforeseen circumstance his family has fallen upon some difficult times. One characteristic a Soldier cultivates over the course of a twenty year career is pride and that really takes a hit when you have to essentially get over yourself and ask others for help so I know Joe is in a hard spot. Please consider donating to this GoFundMe so him and his family can get their legs back under them.
