May 6, 2015 is a date few people from Grady County, Oklahoma will forget. It is the day a series of tornadoes, ranging from EF0 to EF3, rampaged through the county, destroying homes and property and bringing rains that caused unprecedented flooding in the area. Many people in the county were left homeless that day, and even the people who were left with their homes intact were not spared when mold infested their homes as a result of the flooding.

Families affected by the tornadoes during that week were supposed to be able to request assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency or FEMA. However, because of technicalities, many of these families were denied the assistance they need. Some of these families do not have homeowners' insurance, and thus were left with no real option for rebuilding their homes.

A retired army veteran, Sgt. Daniel Reich, and his wife and five children were among those whose home was torn apart by the tornadoes. Honoring America's Warriors has decided to extend him assistance. Sgt. Reich, however, recognizes that other families in his community need help too, and has expressed his intention to share the help he gets with his neighbors. So, let's step up and donate to Honoring America's Warriors so they can provide the assist that people of Grady County need right now to get back on their feet.
