Picked this up from Public Ponderings, a Soldier getting ready to go back to Iraq lost everything in a house fire-

In Camden, TN On July the 16th of 2007 the family home of a U.S. soldier serving in Iraq burnt. They lost everything. His wife and children were home at the time. His youngest son became a hero that morning. As the house filled with black smoke he went to his brothers room and literally picked him up and threw him down the hall to his mother. They went out the front door, by then the hall was full of black smoke, so he dove out the window of his brothers room. The family has lost everything. He is having to go back to his unit in Iraq soon. This soldier has been serving in Iraq for almost 13 months and now has no home to come to. We are asking for signatures so that we can submit them along with an application to ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Maybe we can get this soldier and his family the help they need.

Please to to A Soldiers Extreme Home Makeover and sign the petition being sent to ABC.
