The EFM Feature

It’s been a while since David was deployed — thankfully. The more time that passes, the more that year in Iraq seems like a dream to our family… A dream that forever changed us.
I’m posting to tell you about Michael Medders. He was a police chief’s son, who grew up around law and order, a standout high school football player, earned praise for his aggressiveness on the field and kindness toward others off the field. Twenty-five years old, he was a member of the U.S. Army’s famed 2nd Squadron (Sabre Squadron) 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment Army captain and served in Iraq along with David. He was David’s friend.
He was killed by a suicide bomber the day David returned home from the war, and a memorial scholarship has been set up in his honor.
SixSeeds – an online magazine for parents looking for the good in movies, television, sports, books, music, and fun family service opportunities – has graciously offered to donate $1 to the Mike Medders Memorial Scholarship Foundation for all new subscriptions to their (free!) online magazine. (Up to $2500!) This is the same SixSeeds that organized “Operation Send-a-Box” to support Sabre Squadron when David was deployed. Thanks to you, more than 2,000 care packages were sent to FOB Caldwell — enough to supply every soldier on the base . . . twice!
But we don’t just support our soldiers when they are “downrange.” They deserve our support even more now — especially when they have paid the ultimate price.
So we’re asking for your help again. Except this time it’s a lot easier than stuffing $100 worth of sheets, towels, movies, and books into a box and sending it to Iraq. All we need this time is your email address. If you sign up for SixSeeds awesome (free!) online magazine, we’ll donate $1 to the Mike Medders fund. Already, more than 500 people have signed up.
If you sign up, you’ll simply receive an e-mail every Friday with movie, book, and television reviews as well as parenting discussions and commentary on our culture. It’s free and you can cancel anytime.
Would you mind helping us honor Mike? We’d love to try to get every one of those $2,500.
Follow the easy instructions found here.
Thanks, and God bless the families of America’s fallen soldiers.
