A Soldier Needs Our Help

I received the following email from a WHB member.
I don't often do this, but I need some help getting the word out about a local soldier who is in need. Chris Cooper Jr is currently stationed in Iraq. His father passed away from cancer last month, and the combination of loss of income, medical bills and funeral expenses has practically wiped the family's finances out. Cooper has had to take out a loan against his military pay to help pay for the funeral and other bills.

I have a post up at Lone Star Pundit about the Cooper family's plight:

There is more info in the local newspaper, here:

Would you be willing to send out a message to the Wednesday Hero blogroll, to see if anyone would be interested in carrying (or at least linking to) Cooper's story?

Much obliged!
So, if you have a blog or belong to a newsgroup or visit forums please link back to his post and help get the word out. Or email it to friends and family. These guys do so much for so many, I think we can give a little bit back.
