This person has left the following thank you note:

I just found out our request was funded and my family and I want to thank all of you who helped us so fast. Without you we'd have lost a lot of money we've already put into this solar system but now we can rest easy. I'm working a new job and as soon as the VA gets my retirement straightened out we'll be completely back on our feet but at least we don't have to worry about losing this investment any more. Thanks to everyone who donated. We will DEFINITELY pay it forward!!!!!!!

Combat Vet About to Lose the Lights Due to Va Mistake

My Story:

I am a married father of two kids, one boy and one girl. Both kids are black belts in Taekwondo, and my wife is a cosmetologist. My daughter is the youngest Taekwondo instructor in the state of Arizona. I am a combat wounded veteran who served in the Marines and the Army for over 16 years. I was wounded in Iraq in 2010, and have been a medic for almost 13 years.

My Retirement benefits from the VA were cut in half due to a VA mistake that is taking a lot longer to fix than promised. All of our basic bills are me each month between my retirement and buy wife's income but we live month to month. This mistake is having a huge effect on our budget and now we are getting behind. I have gotten a job in the meantime to help bridge the gap, however our Solar Panels which we got to help curb our electricity bill has been kicked back due to this. I need Modest Needs help with this bill.

This funding will help us get back on track and keep our Solar Panels. With them our electric bill is more than 80% lower than usual. Your assistance would mean the world to us. Thank you.
