An Auction on Behalf of a Military Family

Here's the auction link:

Buzz Patterson 3 Book Military Family Benefit Auction

(Let me know if the link doesn't work.)

I wanted to spread the word as much as possible to help out this family. As soon as I have the URL for the auction I will post it. Please consider going there and bidding on the books!

This is a request to all my readers to help out this wonderful family and in doing so, you could be the owner of personally signed copies of Lt. Col. "Buzz" Patterson's three books. You've read about Ellicia on my blog before here. So, you know that she and her family are facing a situation that would break most of us. They, however, are determined to make the most of each moment and they could use our help. Below are some of the details of the upcoming auction to raise money for this family. Andrea Shea King and Mark Vance have arranged this auction and are putting the word out not only on their blog, The Radio Patriots, but also on their radio show, Constitutional Public Radio. A giant thank you to both of them for taking on this wonderful endeavor!
Lt. Col. Robert "Buzz" Patterson, USAF (Ret.), Chief Operating Officer with the David Horowitz Freedom Center, is donating and will personally autograph a trio of his best selling books: "Reckless Disregard: How Liberal Democrats Undercut Our Military, Endanger Our Soldiers, and Jeopardize Our Security"; "Dereliction of Duty - The Eyewitness Account of How Bill Clinton Compromised America's National Security"; and his most recent book "War Crimes - The Left's Campaign to Eliminate the Military and Lose the War on Terror", debuting in January '07.

Patterson was the senior ranking officer of the five military aides serving in the Clinton White House, and carried the "nuclear football" - the top secret briefcase containing the launch codes for America's nuclear weapons.

Constitutional Public Radio is honored to join Buzz Patterson in this benefit auction for Army Spc. Reid Stanley, "SC Eagle" of A Storm in Afghanistan, and his wife Ellicia, who is battling cancer of the brain, breast, and lungs. They have three young children. And mounting expenses.

Our Happy Family
SC Eagle writes at his website: "We have finally received word back from the military. Hospice care is not covered. Which means, any home care we provide Ellicia here will be out of our own pocket. This is going to be expensive. So, reluctantly, and humbly, we'd like to ask those of you who stop by... Please help. Anything will be appreciated. Ellicia will likely need home care as her mind shuts down. And she wants to be at home, not in a hospital... home, surrounded by our children." And military insurance doesn't cover that.

"SC Eagle", stationed in Germany, was deployed to Afghanistan, and now faces another, more personal war, one with Ellicia's life in the balance.

Patterson will autograph each book with a personal message to the top bidder.

Sure to make a thoughtful and personal Christmas gift for that special military guy or gal or your favorite veteran, the three-book set will be a historic keepsake for years to come, and help a military family in their time of need.

This auction will begin Thursday, October 19 at 10:00 pm (est). At that time I will post the URL for the auction site and I encourage everyone to bid! Let's help this wonderful family stay together for as long as they possibly can.
