If You Know Me – You Know Why I Fight

If you know me, you should know that I already fought for – and won – the autism treatments MY child needs.

If you know me, you should know that from day one of this journey it has been about the OTHER military families who are STILL FIGHTING.

If you know me, you should know that I am fighting for the Caring for Military Families with Autism Act – because it is simply the right thing to do.

If you know me, you know my soldier has committed his life to serving our country – and you have supported us as a family along the way because you learned a soldier does not serve alone.

If you know me, you know that AUTISM IS HARD – and getting what your child with autism needs is overwhelming and exhausting.

If you know me, you will speak up for my fellow military families without hesitation – the families that serve to protect all of us – and you will contact your Members of Congress and say ‘IT IS TIME’.

IF YOU KNOW ME – YOU KNOW WITHOUT A DOUBT – I WILL MAKE IT MY MISSION TO HARASS YOUR LAZY ASS UNTIL YOU TAKE A FEW MOMENTS ONCE IN A WHILE TO SERVE YOUR COUNTRY, TOO – AND YOU WILL LEND YOUR VOICE TO THE FIGHT.

If you know me, you know I will lift each and every one of you up and praise this effort and toast you for being someone I can call ‘Friend’.

I am begging you on behalf of these families – DO SOMETHING. NOW.

 

Love,

Mrs. Sergeant Major (my friends call me Rach)

    For the 1st time ever, I have just sent an e-mail to my congressman. I hope it helps.

    • Mrs. Sergeant Major

      YES!!! Then YOU have just done a wonderful and amazing thing for ALL military families! Thank you! Now… ask just a couple of your friends or family to do the same. That’s how we make it happen!

      So grateful – thank you.

    Thank you for getting me to finally get off my lazy ass and write a letter. I actually wrote pres. obama, my reps and senator. I’ve been planning on doing this forever and will get my husband to do the same. Thanks for the kick in the pants that I needed!

    Yes our children NEED this and please remember, we fight for all children with autism so we need help as well. If we can get this to pass, I truly believe every state will soon after require insurance for ABA and all autism treatments! My son’s father was disabled due to his second tour in Iraq protecting you and your family, which now leaves our child without autism insurance. PLEASE – help our family now. From the bottom of our hearts… thank you.
    Thank you, please click on the link I provided to contact your representatives and tell them “I am requesting [add your Rep’s name here]‘s support of H.R. 2288 – Caring for Military Kids with Autism Act (CMKAA).” – that’s all you have to do it only takes a few seconds to save these children’s lives!
