Supporting our troops

I received an e-mail from a co-worker this morning and thought I'd pass the information on to you, my readers, in case you'd like to help support this young man.

"On August 5, Jay Raffetto, a young Navy Corpsman, was seriously injured in an IED explosion in Afghanistan. Jay lost both legs above the knee, his left arm above the elbow and three fingers on his right hand. This young man has a long road to recovery and is currently working hard on his rehabilitation at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Jay and his wife Emily go to therapy twice a day and are making great progress, emotionally and physically. The military has a very strong support system that is assisting the wounded Corpsman with rehabilitation and occupational therapy and training. However, Jay and Emily now face a lifetime of physical, economic and emotional challenges. "

The event release can be found here.
