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.
Mrs. Sergeant Major (my friends call me Rach)
