Dan is amazing man who is a recipient of the purple heart and has recently (Aug 31) retired from the United States Marines after just about 18 years serving our country. After retirement he had to undergo multiple surgeries from war injuries, thus being out of work. He has 2 beautiful little girls who he misses greatly. We would like to send him to see his girls for Christmas if possible. They live across the country and due to him not working immediately after retirement due to his surgeries he has collected a great deal of debt as well as going through a divorce. We would like for anyone who has in it in their heart to donate to contribute to the travel expenses (flight, hotel & car) to see his girls for Christmas and any remaining amount donated could go towards any outstanding debt this Marine has. He has given himself unselfishly to this country and we just want to give him back what he’s due. It will never be enough to thank him for all the tours he’s done in Iraq and Afghanistan but it’s start. He shouldn't be struggling after everything he's done. He’s family to us and we love him dearly.
