There are many people and most probably don’t want their names associated with this.
My family to include my extended Ohio family. I couldn’t be any luckier than to have this group. They were an incredible support. I miss my dad who passed away during all of this. They drove out in the middle of the night and stayed by my side, even when I probably didn’t even know they were there. So many feats and unselfish acts to help me. Thanks doesn’t even begin to cover my appreciation.
Friends. I don’t have many friends for a reason, and my friends proved that logic. No matter how bad things were I never sensed they looked down on me. Those that I considered true friends continued to look me straight in the eyes.
Gunny. As I would expect from a Staff NCO, Gunny has been the hard charger. He works tirelessly raising funds to help the very small amount of research that is done.
Work. Okay so I work in IT, mostly computer work. Ever wonder how those computers get placed in those racks you see on the TV? That was definitely a concern. I have been lucky however, the two employers I was with during this time provided all the support they could. I was laid up a month for the TM and even longer for the CVID incident. Yes I work hard so I believe my employers do not see me abusing their graciousness, but I know a lot of other shops that would have been a lot less supportive.
