Please Help One of Our Veterans in Need - Update 05/28/18

Due to recent events where a person that was in need of eye surgery, a huge effort on the part of many on the Platform regardless of being a Veteran, stepped up and sent in donations to this person. His name is Bobby - @solarparadise. We want to thank everyone that sent in donations to get his eye surgery.

However, he is not an actual Veteran. This was just learned today, and things went a little sideways on his end. And as such, we are taking steps to make sure that our Veterans here on the platform are indeed actual Veterans.

He still is need of the surgery, and when his wife returned the donations (which rarely happens if ever) quite a few people have still stepped up and sent the donations back.

You can also read the following post from @guiltyparties about the situation:

Fundraising Campaign -- Statement

We as a group are taking steps toward more accurate Vetting Procedures to avoid any confusion in the future should the need arise to get help for one of our own. And in the future, any attempts at claiming you are a Veteran and in need of help, you will have to supply a great deal of proof before we take action.

So if you are on the Veterans Trail, and you are getting support from @shadow3scalpel and votes from your brothers and sisters, you better be on the up and up. We are taking steps right now on the Discord Chat, take a minute and go read the updates, then you know will know what you need to do.

Dishonor will not be tolerated from Anyone claiming to be a Veteran.

Thanks for your time and attention.

It’s our responsibility as country, as a people, to take care of our veterans. Bobby should not have to raise funds for this procedure. It should be taken care of with a huge "Thank you for your service"

I can't imagine him dealing with the VA. I was denied at the VA as well (I don't need help, don't send any). Just a commentary on the VA. It is a sad state of affairs. I will help.

Just transferred SBD and am resteeming this! I hope lots of other folks chip in!

Let's continue getting the word on on Steemit. We need to take care of our veterans. Thank you for this post! @ironshield

We've been asked to hold off on donations, but thanks to everyone that has participated -> https://steemit.com/life/@solarparadise/hold-off-on-the-donations

I've got a veteran. And he does have dd214 and is in need. Just posted for a call-out for help for him here and in real life. He has 2 kids and a wife going through major medical issues. @powpow420 is his account. I've been trying to get him support and guess it is going to happen.

But thanks for the amazing things that you are doing!

Never leave a man behind!
