    Yesterday, I received an email from my son, John.  It contained a brief explanation relating the upcoming plans of one of his fellow alumni/roommates from college along with a website address.

     I'm passing this information on to everyone here at AR to read.  The information and request for action contained here are passed on without any intent of political opinion attached to it.  Just simply something presented for consideration and possible response. You can either take action or not, but I do hope that you will at least take the time to view and contemplate the contents of the information and website contained here.josh and jackson

   

     This information I received pertains to our son's friend, Josh Freeman, a young man presently serving our country in Iraq. 

VMI

 

    

     Josh and our son became best of friends while attending college together at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia.  They met during their "Rat" year and have remained very close ever since, as has been John's fortune with many of his VMI brothers.  

VMI cadets

    

 

     Josh Freeman recently honored John by serving as an usher in his wedding this April.  He, his wife Molly, and son Jackson celebrated with John and his new bride, Sandi.  Many other VMI brothers were also in attendance that day. 

   

 

     Josh is planning on taking part in a "half-marathon" soon, while in Iraq.  He is seeking sponsors and donations for his participation.  Naturally being "Brother Rats" and friends with John, he passed the information and request for donations on to him.  (For further info on VMI and what a "Rat" is, go to: www.vmi.edu  You may find it very interesting)  

    The monies Josh Freeman raises through his participation will be donated to The Wounded Warrior Project.  

Wounded Warrior Project

 

 The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is to honor and empower wounded warriors.

 PURPOSE

  • To raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women,
  • To help severely injured service members aid and assist each other, and
  • To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of severely injured service members.

    

 

     Josh is asking for support as this obviously effects his comrades and their families.  His goal is to raise $500 for this cause.  If you are interested in helping, it is easy to contribute towards his efforts.  Just click on:  http://www.wwpproudsupporter.kintera.org/freemanje  This will take you directly to Josh's personal page on Wounded Warriorshelp

          Please understand,  Josh personally never touches, sees, or benefits from this money.  All donated funds go directly to the Wounded Warriors Project.  Josh will be listed only as the active participant in the marathon and donor-channel.  I know this young man well ... he will be eternally greatful for your support, should you decide to give.

     Again, I am not advocating anything political one way or another here.  Only that you consider the information presented and the cause itself.  Thank you to AR and my AR friends for the opportunity to pass this information along ...

Jeremy:  Thank you.  You're so right.  If I had not truly believed that many here would at least consider this appeal ... I would have never posted it.  People here on the "Rain" are great ...   Thanks for writing, Jeremy ..
