Wounded Warrior Family Member
“I know I have said this time and time again, but I just want you to know how much I appreciate everything you have/are doing to help our family. It has been a long rough road for us the past couple of months, and because of you and your resources we will not be displaced. I am so thankful.”
Tom and Carol Clark
“Words could never fully express how deeply we appreciate all you and your organization has done for us. So much love and support expressed in such practical ways every day! Your efforts on our behalf are a tribute to the Godly American spirit that lives in your ‘beating heart’!”
Chas is a member of the Stryker Team, 5th Brigade. He was on a humanitarian mission in Afghanistan when an IED (improvised explosive device) struck his Humvee. The soldiers with him died; Chas lost his left eye.
When Chas arrived at Madigan Army Medical Center at Ft. Lewis, Washington, he was without family. His parents were on a long-term mission trip in a Peru orphanage.
Heartbeat paid for a flight from Peru to Ft. Lewis — family support meant everything to Chas’ recovery. We made all the reservations, but there is more. Our volunteers delivered home-cooked meals to the family daily during their reunion.
Thank you, generous donors and volunteers. We couldn’t have done it without you.
