If the hearts of our country are torn on numerous issues, one of the areas where most agree is when it comes to supporting those who serve in our armed forces.

All too often we hear stories of horrors faced when active members return home and attempt to transition to life outside the military.  Many suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), hearing loss, and more.  It is also often difficult for former service members to obtain and sustain meaningful employment.

Most would agree that those who put their lives on the line to serve our country should be given top notch care, and one such individual in West Alabama is in need of all the support he can get.

The family of Zacchaeus Roland writes:

On June 15, 2020 while enjoying a day out on his ATV, Zacchaeus Roland was injured after he was involved in a life changing accident. Over the past two weeks, Zach, a former Army Reservist, that recently became an active duty soldier, has personified the phrase, "Army Strong". Currently, recovering at UAB-Birmingham, he has FOUGHT through severe neurological damage, affecting 30% of his brain, fought through life support and two brain surgeries, with the most recent being on July 3rd. Although, Zach has proven to be resilient, he has a long road of recovery ahead, that will include extensive rehabilitation. Fortunately, with the strength of God and the support of his family, he will continue to strengthen everyday!

There is a fundraising goal of $10,000. So far, almost 20% of that goal has been met. Those willing to assist in Zach’s recovery should click here to donate.
