Verification Please
Any one know of a Gregory Hopkins? Former PJ, 100% disabled combat veteran. He sent me a link on FB to his fundraiser, and before I promote it to my circle of friends, I wanted to ask for a quick verification.

It sucks that we have to even do this kind of thing.

Thanks in advance!

More info if it is needed: He was in from 91-02. Was a PJ with the 210th out of Alaska. Now they're the 212th once they split from the helos and hercs.

What conflict was he involved in?

Yes very good man. Has suffered for a long time with PTSD/TBI issues from a mission we were on together in 94. Friendly fire incident 2 F15's shot 2 blackhawks out of the sky in Iraq. We only had six body bags because the initial call was they shot 2 HINDs down and we were supposed to just get intel.

He was running a farm for disabled vets and the lady that was kind enough to let him lease the land for free has lost her way a bit and is booting him. Again good man, trying to do good things. Any other question please PM me.
