THE STORY:

I am the very proud wife and caregiver of a Combat Vet.... Sgt Jonathan M Rose has served this country between the years 2004 - 2012 , including 3 Combat Tours in Iraq and Afghanistan..Forced to Medically retire May 30, 2015 because of injuries he sustained during combat.... Sgt Rose was a very Courageous Marine and his job was a Machine Gunner / Team Leader (0331) During his years of service he has hit a total of 19 I.E.D's , knocked unconscious Twice and Hospitalized . Some of his good friends were not as Fortunate. The 19th and final Blast in August 2011 consisted of a 200 pound  I.E.D blowing off the entire back of the Vehicle Sgt Rose and other fellow Marines were  driving while in upper Gereschk valley , south of Sangin ...this was the blast that finally did him in Physically Sgt Rose began experiencing complications in 2012, Blood began pooling up on the left side of his brain causing his brain to swell and tremendous pressure on the skull He began suffering horrible headaches daily and Seizures began to follow... After numerous testing and medical procedures Sgt Rose was Diagnosed with Severe TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and his seizures Escalated to  Seizures with Syncope and topping it off with Severe PTSD .... I am his caregiver and best friend! Some of the simple things in life are now somewhat of an obstacle for my husband... His driving privileges are gone because of the unexpected seizures ...the Headaches consume most of his life as well, He is prescribed meds to help but the side affects are usually horrible and make it very hard to maintain a physical life.... Depression is constant and mood swings are sometimes very difficult to live with ... Since Sgt Rose is now medically retired his self worth is an issue to him, but we have 2 Beautiful daughters that remind him daily how much they love and need him... We would love to save for a house of our own but with our expenses we cannot seem to budget enough to save! My husband talks positively about someday getting a big house, back yards, gardens and a workout room and so on, It's awesome to see him smile despite the constant pain he suffers physically and Mentally Sgt Rose was awarded 2 Purple  Hearts and 2 Combat Action Ribbons , 2 Navy Achievement Metals with combat Distinguishing Devices , amongst several other awards and metals 

In his own words " Nothing will ever Replace the Loss " that he had endured ... I am hoping to some day give him his Sanctuary and the peace he deserves and has earned... I know there are numerous organizations and Charities but to be honest we have either been turned down or the vibes we picked up sorta made us feel ashamed.... I am asking for alittle help Hopefully for a down payment on a house This was one of the hardest things I have ever done , like my husband pride plays a huge role in our lives .... Thank you in Advance from Myself and from Sgt Rose and Family
