On July of 2012 my family and me were sent to camp Pendleton to supposing I was going to finalize my retirement, I couldn't wait. The only problem was that this was a last minute thing. I was told on a thursday that we were flying out on Sunday. Aside from that my wife was 8 months Pregnant about ready to pop. It took a toll on both of us, specially her. Aside from all this it was a very unexpected expense. The marines said they pay for the plane. But everything else I need to pay out of pocket and then I would get re imbursed in 4 to 6 weeks. They flew me into camp Pendleton and had to rent a car. And if it wasn't for the Semper Fi fund, I would've had to pay for a hotel too! I spoke with them one day and they had everything ready for me and my family that same day. After everything, we were finally heading home. I was worried about my financial situation at the moment. Evacuee like I said it was an unexpected expense. Sure enough 2 days after we got back home I went negative on my account. Now I was worried about everything after all what was I going to do for the next week until I got paid? Without hesitation the Semper Fi fund sent my family and I a check to cover the expenses for the next week and I couldn't of had asked for a bigger blessing. It turned out that they rescheduled my appointments without notifying me or headquarters marines. So it was a trip for nothing! But thanks to the Semper Fi fund I was able to get through this hard time! If they were not there for us, it would've made it very difficult for my family. Being single is one thing but having a family they end up being your priority. And wether I'm negative on my account or not, my wife needed to eat, we needed gas for doctors appointments. Having the Semper Fi fund help was like God sending me a guardian angel to watch over me and my family. They say God works in misterious ways, and this is the perfect example of it! God answered my prayers with the Semper Fi fund. So thank you for blessing me and my family. The care is amazing with them. They listen to you no Matther what you have to say. And they truly do whatever they can to help out the wounded Iraq veteran. If it was not for them we would had struggled. Thank you for everything and God bless the Semper Fi. Fund!
