A Friend in Need April 29, 2008

Posted by Michael in News.

Our favorite zombie is concerned about his pal Stashiu.

For a little background on Stash, he served honorably in the Army for 24 years, most of that time was spent as a psychiatric nurse, some of you may remember Stashiu’s multi-part interview at Patterico’s Pontifications, where he spoke about his time as a Psychiatric Nurse at Guantanamo Bay. He’s always been a good source and unique perspective on issues of terrorist detainees and detention policy, particularly with Guantanamo.

Stashiu is the proud father of two adopted daughters. Unfortunately, Stash later found that the lawyer who was supposed to square away all the legal paperwork for the adoption didn’t quite get it right, so he has to now backtrack with new lawyers to get things right and finally seal the deal. The process is costing Stash and his family a king’s ransom.

The tough financial situation and worry over the prospect of losing his two daughters is unsurprisingly starting to wear him down and take a toll on his health.

Your prayers and best wishes would be appreciated. If you would like to read more about the plight of Stash or help in a more tangible way you can find out how at Doubleplusundead, or you can go directly to Stashiu’s Space (a thank you post) and click on the Amazon button at the top of the right sidebar.  If you want to read about his original problem with incompetent lawyers, go here.

It kinda makes my blood boil when people get fucked over by bad lawyers.

Thank you for stopping by and for the support. You’re absolutely right about doubleplusundead… none of this would have happened without his support and hard work. He’s a great friend and a good person to have your back.

You’re more than welcome, Stash. God bless you and your family. And thank you for your service to our country.

BTW, my Mom was an Army nurse during WWII, and worked as a psychiatric nurse in a VA hospital when I was growing up. I’ve seen a locked ward, and it’s not pretty. I know how hard that job is.

Stash, I served as a chaplain in an Army medical center and was so impressed by the professionalism of the techs, nurses and doctors on staff. My heart goes out to you. Thanks for serving.
