Congratulations to Sara, our Orlando vacation winner! Her entry:
“2 kids, husband injured April 29th, 2006. Never had a family vacation.”
And yes, I count the date as one word.
Sara’s husband was injured by an IED blast during a bridge demolition mission. He doesn’t remember many details of the explosion, but he couldn’t hear for about a month afterward. Then he started having problems with his memory and balance. He’s since been diagnosed with PTSD and TBI, which causes periodic paralysis, nightmares and debilitating headaches.
They’ve got two young kids; a 4-year-old daughter and a 4-month-old son. Here’s hopin’ they all have a wonderful time.
We’re thrilled that we can send them on their first family vacation.
