I got an email from someone who knew someone who knew something that they thought might be important to me.  ”You wantta hear a story about how a combat wounded, disabled Marine in California had repairs done to his house by a group of 50 college students he asked?”    Sure I said, what’s the story?   Read the email I am about to send to you.

Over $30,000 worth of labor and donated or purchased materials went into the restoration of disabled Marine Sgt. Jason Swofford’s Oceanside home
