Marine Veteran needs our help

Corporal Jake Waggoner has recently been informed by doctors he has six months to live. Jake and his wife Selamawit are the parents of a beautiful little girl, and are currently expecting their second child around the time doctors have told Jake he will pass away. To many Jake is a father, husband, son, brother, and a friend. 'Wiggles' as Jake has come to be known by his fellow Marines, has definitely left his mark on those he’s come in contact with over the years. His uncanny ability to alleviate any situation with his unique brand of humor and larger than life personality is what Marines come to admire the most about him. This quality of Jake’s was a God send during a deployment to Iraq with Combat Logistics Battalion 1 in August, 2006, through March, 2007. We encourage you to donate whatever you can, be it your time, your money or your own experience, to ensure Jake’s final days are ones in which he doesn’t need to worry about the family he leaves behind. Please visit and help spread the word. Thank you for your support, and may God and his blessings be with the Waggoner's in their time of need.
