On Facebook I got a message from Goli Motar about a project to raise funds to have a home built through Homes for Our Troops for badly wounded SGT David Battle. Read Goli's Facebook message and then click on the link provided below to donate funds.
Subject: Homes for Our Troops
Dear friends and family,
In March, our team will be heading to White Sands, New Mexico, to participate in the Bataan Memorial Death March, a 26.2 mile march through the high desert terrain of the White Sands Missile Range.
Our goal is to raise awareness of the difficulties facing severely wounded service men and women upon their return to the United States from combat.
SGT David Battle, a resident of Baltimore, Maryland, was severely wounded while serving in Iraq during combat operations on December 18, 2007.
Homes for Our Troops, a charitable organization that provides specially adapted homes for wounded soldiers, is building SGT David Battle a home in Baltimore, Maryland. All donations we raise during the march will go to building this home for SGT Battle and his family.
Our team currently consists of six members -- five members of the military and one civilian:
CPT Adam Tiffen
CPT Brian Borakove
CPT Peter Goff
1LT Jarred Fishman
2LT Jason Bariatti
and Yochi Dreazen, our hardcore civilian friend!
Our collective goal is to raise $5,000. Please give what you can, and be kind enough to forward this along to others so that they might participate.
As we train for the march, we will be posting periodic updates and photographs showing our progress. Please feel free to contact us and offer your encouragement and support!
