Can you imagine operating on wounded after wounded soldier every day for 10 hours a day 7 days a week? For five years straight? That is what my dear friend has done for others in a Middle Eastern war zone.
His time was up Dec. 31st, but he was delayed ten weeks longer. This devastated him and his kids (11 and 9). But now he has now been told he has to pay to get home at his own expense. Without orders to accompany his military passport, he is stuck! It won’t work to get him through customs; he cannot fly commercially. It will take $30,000 USD for him to get a private flight home!
His dad is not wealthy and has sent $4,000 precious dollars, but is tapped out now. HIs friends are not wealthy either. On top of that, my friend froze his own accounts, except for one to pay for the boys and their sitter, while he was away. Of course, the banks will not open his other checking account without his being in person. He already tried that. He desperately needs help!
What Caused This Horrible Dilemma?
I will admit to you that he did break a rule; he called loved ones without permission during this unexpected 10 weeks extra, because he needed moral support during this extended time to keep his spirit and positive attitude in the forefront. When the calls were discovered two weeks ago, this changed things and and resulted in this new “pay your own way home” requirement, just two days before he was supposed to depart.
Please share with your friends and colleagues on Facebook, etc. Please help him and the boys by donating to pay the freight. Any help is so appreciated! Together, let’s bring this respected and loved 'medical soldier' home! Yes, it was the soldiers who threw him a surprise farewell party a few days before he was supposed to leave.
Yes, it’s a large amount. But it is a very unusual and unexpected situation. God Bless All who take the time to read this. And I will light a candle in my church for everyone who donates!
