Wounded Warfighters - How to Help

First, some great news for SFC Buzz Richardson, who I wrote about here and here. By way of Buzz's Mom and Aunt, we have this good news, and a new address to send him cards.

Buzz has been discharged from Walter Reed and flown to Augusta Georgia!!! They told him Wednesday night at 11:30 PM that he would be leaving DC for Georgia at 6:45AM Thursday morning!!! Sarah was up all night packing first her motel room and then Buzz's hospital room. They flew via military cargo .....not what you'd call first class. They were both pretty worn out by the time they reached Augusta. Sarah is staying in a Comfort Inn within walking distance of the hospital.
Buzz is in room 1134.

The address is :
Augusta VA Medical Center
Patient SFC Richard C. Robertson Rm# 1134
One Freedom Way
Downtown Division
Augusta, Georgia 30901

Buzz and his wife, Sarah, very much appreciate all of the kind attention. Send a note of thanks, or just keep them in your prayers.

You might remember that Buzz is one of the soldiers who has received a laptop through the Soldiers' Angels Valour-IT project. This project is so very important for providing a means of communication and independence for our wounded warfighters, so we are launching a new fundraising competition. The Fuzzilicious one has all the details here - please go visit her site, add your suggestions, and start thinking about how you'll plan to participate.

Blog ChallengeWe need to spread the word far and wide to ensure the success of the project - don't delay!!
