Best I can say is contact Tim Summers and get more information.
Nachum ping list please
I believe if she contacts the Military Order of the Purple Heart (national) they will help her.
check out this site and if you know the family, have them set up an account! They take a small percentage, but credit card donations go straight through to the source IMMEDIATELY:
I will chip into the goal of getting this soldier home...
Something about this story doesn’t add up. The story doesn’t mention if the soldier was granted convalescent leave, or has just been granted a pass from the hospital. It makes a big difference. Normally a soldier on convalescent leave is entitled to air ambulance transportation to a point nearest his home, probably Camp Shelby in his case. I have flown the air ambulance route (Air Force C-9), and it is a pain in the a$$ as are most things military, but it gets you there. Just not when you want and not as convenient as you want. If you don’t like that, you are on your own, subject to the doctor’s orders. I’ve paid the commercial airfare before, rather than wait three days and then take another two or three in transit to get home. You are under superb medical care all along the way, but the rest of it was guaranteed to raise your blood pressure.
I’d like to see some more details and one or two facts, not just the whining account.
My wife knows the mom says she heard it was hazing was at fault
“he has been cleared for release”
Cleared but needs medical attention for travel? Doesn’t sound cleared to me. Usually only hospice patients needs medical care for travel.
After being hospitalized for several days Odom still suffers from a long list of injuries including brain damage. "He was in a coma. He has broken ribs and his pelvis is completely crushed," said Palazola-Herrin.
I'm not a doctor but it sure as heck doesn't sound like he's ready to be released yet.
Perhaps the mother misunderstood what the doctor was saying?
Does anyone have a Dale Brown book handy? I just finished his last one (Tiger’s Claw) and just took it back to the library but he flies his own planes for air ambulance and had the name of the company on the flyleaf (I think) and he flies out of Sacramento or the Reno area??? The pilots donate their time, planes and expenses. I was going to write it down but thought I’d remember it. Should have known that wasn’t going to happen....
