Help a former Marine

My husband wanted me to make this post about a former Marine who is in need of a new set of lungs. People from all over the country have come together to help him. The Marine does not live in Crisfield, nor even in our county, but he does live in the county where my daily newspaper has its office.

I will not go into the details because this blog is just a humble little small town blog and we like it that way. You never know where tags will take you these days. I will direct you to where you can read all you need to know. I can tell you that we purchased a ticket.

For those of you who wish to donate, I can assure you that this is a worthy cause. And for helping out you could win a 1,360 square foot, 2 bedroom, 2 bath town house located in Preserves Court in Sarasota Florida, AND a brand new Mercedes Benz SL Convertible.

The Marine and his cause have been featured in my newspaper and on TV, including CBS (you can read all about that on the site). So check out the link above and give it a go. If you have any questions please feel free  to email me.There are also numerous official contacts on the above site if you have any concerns.

Semper Fi to ALL Marines from my husband! As many of you know he was a helicopter door-gunner in Vietnam in 66-67. Once a Marine, always a Marine. Marines are blood-brothers forever. So how could I not make this post?

Oh, and for those of you who play the lottery your chances are really good here. Only 40,000 tickets will be sold.  But more importantly, even if you don't win, this former Marine will win a new set of lungs. And that is worth every penny.

Thanks TP. It is just super that so many people have come together to sponsor this. The Marine in question works for the car dealership where we bought our car. Their support for him has been wonderful. In this day and age if you get sick your company wants to boot you out the door. Not these people. Kudos to them!
