Helping Heroes

Via Michelle Malkin this morning, a call to support milblogger Reid Stanley of A Storm in Afghanistan.


Reid's wife Ellicia has been diagnosed with cancer in her breasts, lungs and brain. The prognosis is terminal, and hospice care is not covered under his military benefits.

I humbly ask my readers for two things:

First and foremost, if you are able, please contribute financially to help his family through this traumatic time if you are able, and keep them in your prayers.

Second, please contact your Congressmen and Senators to ask that hospice care for the immedate family members of servicemen be added to the benefits package of those serving this nation. Our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines risk their lives to protect us. It seems only right that we provide for them and their families when they need it most.
