Today is the last day of our fundraiser for Mr. Wood. It has been a long road repairing his home and raising the money. The amount of help, love and support you all have given is outstanding and we all thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I will be discussing trip details with the Wood family very soon, once I recieve the funds from this site I will make out a check for Mr. Elbert Wood and send it out to him. I'll be posting a confirmation of funds on our facebook page at www.facebook.com/GruntLifeUSA
Thanks you so much
Thank you so much for all your support. So far we have reached $5680 in our attempt to raise money for Mr. Wood, and family. As of now we are in the planning process to get him everything he needs for his trip to Washington D.C. Let's not let this cause slow down. We raised the bar after we realised how awesome everyone has been in helping this fundraiser. Just to let you know Mr. Wood's story made it into the Marine Corps Times this week as well, please check out the story and post a comment. (LINK BELOW).

We have recently heard back from Jim McLaughlin, chairman of Honor Flight. We are pleased to say that we will be working side by side with them on this trip as well so that we may be able to coordinate time with other WW2 veterans as well for Mr Wood to meet with and participate in some of their activites as well.
We here at GruntLife could not be more proud of the support and comments and help to make this trip a possibility for Mr Wood. Thank EVERYONE so very much and thank you Honor Flight for reaching out to us as well.
We have been continuing to talk with Matt Wood, son of Elbert Wood. He continues to send his gratitude on behalf of his father, his family and himself. We at GruntLife are also extremely touched and sincere for all the help on this amazing fundraiser. To think that in less then 48 hours we have already reached $4,320 is simply amazing.
To the supporters of this cause, the pages who have supported us, the individuals and businesses who have helped us, on behalf of the Wood Family and GruntLife and all involved with this fundraiser, a very very sincere THANK YOU!
You all are what make us so proud to be veterans!
On behalf of Elbert Wood, the rest of the Wood family and GruntLife, we want to give a shout out to all of our supporters on our fundraiser to help Elbert Wood and his family go to Washington D.C., for a few days. We are not even 48 hours into our fundraiser and we are proud to say that we are now at $3,857!!!
You people are just absolutely amazing and there are simply no words that we can say or use to express the gratitude that you and the pages supporting this cause are all due!
Truly amazing. We are not even 12 hours into this fundraiser and already we are more then halfway into our goal. Words simply can not express the gratitude for all of you who have and continue to help out with this wonderful fundraiser. We will keep you all up to date so we can share photos also of the trip from this brave man's journey.
On behalf of GruntLife, Elbert Wood, his son Matthew, and the rest of the Wood family, we can not begin to thank you all enough who have donated so far and we would like to continue to thank all who do donate to this also. We have been in touch with the family about this wonderful fundraiser for Mr Elbert Wood, we've been in touch with some of the hotels in Washington D.C., we will also be making arrangements for him to have a wheel chair and have mutliple veteran groups to help show the family around the area and be sure he and the family have an amazing time in Washington D.C.
