HELP US SUPPORT A MAN THAT HAS DONE SO MUCH FOR OUR COUNTRY!!

Elbert Wood, a WW2 Marine Corps veteran, came home to the unthinkable on Jan 21, 2013. His home had been vandalized by 2 boys. The boys had spray painted his walls, furniture, carpeting, television and nearly anything else they could. At 93 years old, Mr. Elbert Wood, though disabled, chooses to remain within his own home that he built 55 years ago in Houston, TX. Just over 2 weeks prior to this incident, Mr. Wood had laid his wife to rest. We are now seeking the funds to send Mr. Wood to Washington D.C., so he may go and see the WW2 memorial. The funds raised will help to cover all expenses for the trip to include airfare, transportation in D.C., food and other expenses for both Mr. Elbert Wood and one caregiver.

On behalf of Mr. Elbert Wood, his family, GruntLife and veterans everywhere, we THANK YOU sincerely.
