My name is Donald DeLoach and I am a Soldier a Combat Veteren my MOS is 11B. I am requesting assistance so that I can visit Robert Rosta a good friend and fellow Combat Veteren who was injured in Afghanistan and is now being treated at Walter Reed. I was at Walter Reed myself a few years ago and I did not enjoy my stay not that I was treated bad but because I was far from my Brothers and Sisters in combat and the only reason I managed to not go insane was because I was not alone there I had other wounded Brothers and Sisters and we were embracing the suck together but what made the difference and stood out the most was that a good friend and fellow Combat Veteren came to visit me. He was there for me and I found out years later that I was there for him and we both healed during those visits. I will never forget him. I am not going to lie since I got out of the military its been an up hill battle I barely make it through each day even now but Rob called me on the 26th of JAN told me what had happened and that he was at Walter Reed so now I must be there for him. I have always helped others even if it broke me. Life has been hard but I will keep on fighting and give the shirt off my back. I ask that you could help me reach out to a friend in need I just cannot afford to do this on my own and even though he offered to help pay I just cannot bring myself to ask him to pay me to visit. Over 75% of the friends I have on Facebook are Combat Veterens I would do the same for all of you.
What I am asking for is help in fuel, tolls round trip and a cheap hotel room for 2 days at Bethesda MD From Shenandoah PA on the 18th and 19th of FEB 2014 and what ever change from that I am donating to the wounded Warrior Project. I will keep receipts of everything and post it as well as post the amount donated to The Wounded Warrior Project.
Thank you for the Support and God Bless
