FWSF Wants To Help

From a hero, recently:

"We wanted to thank you so very much for helping us get a place to get back on our feet.
Thought I would send you a photo so you could put faces to the people you all helped!!!"

To the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund Staff,

On behalf of my husband Jerry and myself I would like to Thank You all very much for your kindness and support. . . . We hope to someday soon be able to give back to another military family the blessing that has been given to us.

Hi, my name is Rick D.

Recently you helped with some financial trouble I was having, which I greatly appreciate, thank you so very much. Right now I am dealing with a lot of issues from being in Iraq. . . . we had just entered the city of Bayji when my truck was hit by an anti tank grenade, it went off right above my seat, I was showered with shrapnel, my gunner sustained shrapnel wounds to his arm. . . . I still have shrapnel in both of my legs, and sometimes my legs do bother me . . . I have PTSD which seems to be one of my bigger issues . . . I am in the process of getting all my problems taken care of . . once again I would like to thank your organization for the help you have given me. . . if there is anything I can do for your organization, by volunteering time or work, I would be more than happy to do so.

ROBERT WINEGAR JR. was critically wounded in Iraq and was in Brooke Medical Hospital in San Antonio, Texas. Winegar's family and friends raised funds to help him by holding a fundraising event. The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund supported this event and contributed to the Robert Winegar, Jr. Foundation, in conjunction with Huntington Bank. Thousands of dollars were raised and all proceeds went to this hero who has given so much for our freedom.

Dozens of other troops have benefitted from coming to the FWSF with their needs. Families have been able to stave off foreclosure on their homes, rent payments have been made to landlords, and car and utility payments are made to keep our soldiers moving forward with their lives.
