You only get really lucky a few times in your life. I’ve had more luck on my side than ever with all of the inspiring support of family and friends. Now, there’s even people coming out of the woodwork to support wounded warriors such as myself. Let me tell you a story:
I was laid up the hospital for some time, and I got contacted by all sorts of people and organizations whose sole goal was to show their support for myself and my comrades. One of the most committed people I’ve met is a man by the name of Alan Krutchkoff, representing AdoptaSoldierPlatoon.org
I had finally been set free to go on leave after over 5 months of being unable to travel, and I needed something to put all of my gadgets, tools, wheelchair parts and such. I made a brief mention of a need for some luggage and a few other items that soldiers such as myself would greatly enjoy. Mr. Krutchkoff sent me everything I mentioned!
Understand, when people come to you and say they want to help, they often get carried away with their own lives and forget (for a little while at least) about us soldiers. It’s not a fault, just a fact of life. This is where people like Alan Krutchkoff and organizations like Adopt a Soldier Platoon come in.
Since I received the items I requested, Alan has gone out of his way to continue to show support for my comrades and I. I can only hope to learn from his example, and represent the same spirit and support those in need. Thank you so much Alan!
Alan posted an awesome page on Adopt a Soldier Platoon which represents the true spirit we all need in order to move forward after these times of crisis.
