SUPPLY CRATE – HOLIDAY CHEER 2
Supply Crate HOLIDAY CHEER 2 checking in! Justin was a machine gunner with an Infantry company with two trips to Afghanistan under his belt that, by the time his second tour was over, he was convinced his platoon sergeant was trying to kill him. Justin ended up being asked to leave the service under a general discharge with a 60% disability rating from the VA, most of which was for severe post-traumatic stress disorder. His request stated:
“I am a veteran. During my military career as an infantrymen I have seen and done a lot of things that I’m not proud of, and I am reminded that on a daily basis because I can’t do a lot of things I used to enjoy doing. I haven’t lost a limb or anything but my mind is damaged, and it’s hard for me to turn my thoughts off. I had some very good friends, and I lost some good friends from battle and from an incident where my platoon Sargent tried to kill me.
I feel like a fool typing because people don’t believe that my own brothers would want me dead but this is life, and because of it I don’t have social life nor a job. I just have a wife; we have no cable or internet so I just in the house reading books or thinking about my screwed up life. Thank you guys in advance, even if you deny this application because this idea is awesome.”
Justin upon receiving his Supply Crate took a pic to send back to us as a thank you!
