With the Surge in full swing and fighting escalating in Afghanistan, there is a growing need to help our wounded, and the families of the wounded and the Fallen soldiers. Soldiers' Angels is there for them and they need your help to keep providing support. Funds are drying up. Soldiers' Angels needs donations now.
If you can't donate cash, you can Adopt a Soldier or a Platoon of Soldiers, you can join one of the teams to help support our troops with your valuable time, donate your airmiles to help a soldier and his family reunite, donate your cell phone or even your car....I could go on and on.
If you've been around here for awhile you know how I feel about these people. They need our help. Here are some of the things that they do that you may not know about:
This is a request for a flight for a soldier injured in Germany:
...Situation was a soldier in Germany
fell off a bridge landing on his head and is in very critical condition
and not sure if he will survive or not. He is currently at BAMC DC.
He needed flights for the parents, which Fisher House
wouldn't do because his injury didn't occur in Iraq or Afghanistan...so
I went ahead and took care of that for him. It was approximately $500
for each ticket and I did get travel insurance with it as well, given
his status is so touch and go...
This is from a Major about a unit in Afghanistan:
...A unit was on patrol and was engaged by hostile fire. The company
commander was killed along with another soldier. In the ensuing fight
numerous other soldiers were wounded. Two of those soldiers were
medevac'd to Walter Reed. One lost an eye and will continue to have
corrective surgery for probably sometime. The other had his leg
shattered and will have a steel rod surgically implanted. After the
company commander was killed, the senior ranking officer became a young
Lieutenant who had to make some quick decisions to save the lives of
the rest of his young soldiers. This Lieutenant was very good friends
with the company commander. The unit is based out of Germany, but the
Lieutenant and the family of the deceased Captain are from the
DC/Virginia area. To make a long story short, the unit in Afghanistan
sent the Lieutenant to the DC area to act as the unit representative.
He departed with little guidance and no advance travel pay. He paid
for his own ticket to get from Dallas to DC. He called this office
from Ireland to seek guidance and incurred over 300 dollars in phone
charges. He is strapped for money at this time. He also asked if
there was anyway to possibly borrow some class A uniforms for the 2
soldiers at Walter Reed so that they could attend the graveside
services of their company commander. Any help you can give would be
greatly appreciated not only by me, but by all of Americas Hero's...
Soldiers' Angels is also trying to get that Company Commander's family to the funeral at Arlington, too.
This is what the Soldiers' Angels do. Anywhere, anytime, whatever the need is, they take care of our military family.
Yes, there are plenty of things our government could do better. But you can sit around and listen to politicians whine about it and take care of their own self interests. And while that happens you can be the one to make a difference.
