Disabled Marine Corps Veteran needing help!
Hi, I have never done anything like this before because I feel bad asking for help. I am a 32 almost 33 y/o (Sept 18) former United States Marine. I have a beautiful wife and a wonderful 3 y/o son (Aug 24).
My wife is a middle school teacher and I am an unemployed disabled veteran. We have been struggling since 2008 as I haven't been able to get a stable job since 2007. I have been to job fairs and expos and have made it to some job interviews.
Unfortunately, it always seems that I am under-qualified or over-qualified. I am looking for help to pay bills to keep the house we live in. Our credit cards are maxed out and we are barely making the minimum payments.
I have been working on my BS degree in Information Technology and will be graduating this coming year 2013. It is my goal to have a stable job once my degree is obtained this spring. Anything anyone is willing to give is greatly appreciated - especially words of encouragement.
I know its not going to be like this forever, but the last 5 years have been a real struggle. This situation has really brought me and my wife closer together, but love doesn't pay the bills or feed our little boys growing belly.
Once we are stabilized again we plan on keeping the cycle of giving going. If anyone has anything to give - donations, grants, words of encouragement, a job.....anything would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, God Bless, and Semper Fi!
