As always, your generosity is very humbling. Though I am retired Air Force, I ask you to consider my younger brother, Mike, for your Karma.
He has served 37 years in the Army National Guard, currently an E-8 assigned to the 1485th Transportation Squadron based in Dover, Ohio. While many consider the Guard to be light duty, he has pulled four combat tours in the Middle East. His first was during the original Gulf War; he was part of the operation to move the Army to the east during the aerial bombardment phase of the war. He was in Kuwait City when it was liberated. He was very nearly killed during his second tour in 2004 when his truck was targeted with an RPG, but the round only creased the back side of the fuel tank and instead impacted on the frame of the truck. As he was riding shotgun in what was their commo truck, he was thrown against the side of the cab and knocked unconscious. He was subsequently awarded a Purple Heart for his injuries. His third tour had him assisting a trans unit that had not deployed to combat yet. That unit's First Sergeant couldn't handle it and was sent back to the States, and my brother assumed his duties. His fourth tour found him assigned the First Sergeant duties of yet another trans unit. Early in their tour, the girlfriend of one of the soldiers dumped that man for another soldier. The man she left was inconsolable and killed himself with his rifle. My brother had to clean up the remains, pull the unit together, and get them through the rest of their tour.
Nothing I did in my years of service could possibly measure up to what he has endured. I truly believe he is worthy of your consideration.

What a wonderful gesture.
I did not have the honor of serving. My father was a submariner in WWII. He lied about his age to join the Navy when the war broke out and saw action in the Pacific. He took ill with a bad appendix and, while in hospital, his sub went out and was sunk. He is still alive and tears up when telling that story.

My Dad and his 5 brothers all served in WWII. All except my Dad went overseas. He was the youngest and they wouldn't let him go because of the Sullivan brothers tragedy.
Only one did not come back. RIP Uncle August.

USAF....1964-1967. After High School I enlisted at 17 with Parents permission because of an earned Russian Major from High School. The Recruiter said I would be of value, as the Hot Spot in the World at that time was East Berlin. Southeast Asia would soon follow. I've seen you do this before. I don't deserve it, but your generosity is amazing.....Please enter me.....Zebulon
Over the top karma.
I was an Army MP--both active and reserve; and gramps survived from Normandy through the Bulge--his reason for never ever going camping.
