    As the daughter of a career Army man and the wife of a retired Army man I've been around the military all my life, and I was really impressed with Maj. Grieves! Quite an accomplishment!

    Thank you and God bless you for your service to our country!

    Re: story of young girl in Hati. My wife and I were very touched by the story of a fifteen-year-old girl in Hati destined for a life of poverty and slavery. We would like to send a modest amount of money on a monthly basis to this child to help get her an education and onto a better life. Can you help to arrange this? Thank you. Steve Zimmerman and Jean Rains.
