Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Give

So many of us take our blessings for granted: a loving spouse, the spontaneity of children and our own good health.

Please go by A Storm in Afghanistan and give up your Starbuck's money for the month or the McDonald's happy meals for a week or two. His wife is dying of cancer and the Army doesn't pay for hospice care at home. She wants to die at home with her children and not in a hospital.

Give and thank God for your blessings.

    I have been lovin everyone extra around here...and praying without ceasing...


    my little money is in an envelope, and ready to go in the morning.

    I encourage everyone to do what little they can. If it is a note, a couple of bucks...then that is that...

    I don't understand why Tricare won't provide them with hospice care. It's covered in the states and I would think be even more needed overseas.

    I'll help all I can, since even hospice won't cover all their needs, but I suggest the guy contact a jag officer and his congressman.

    I think Donna brings up a good point, but you know what? Why don't WE bring it up to our reps? That family probably has more than they can handle on their plates, but we can direct our Congressmen and women to their plight and give them the website and mailing address that is listed there and make our concerns known.

    And, ArmyWife, thanks for the heads up to help out these folks.
