Rick Holman

I'm sure several in this area know Rick. Retired SEAL and long time Vice President at O'Gara. Anyway, he's got COVID and is in intensive care and on a respirator. I'm assuming he's in PA, but not positive on that.

I only interacted with Rick remotely a few years ago but he was a real class act. I'm sorry to hear that.

If he is anywhere near Eastern Pa, let me know if his family needs anything. I am 45 miles above Phila. I can be out and about without a problem.

Update from a bud today as follows:

Got an update on Rick today. He had emergency surgery yesterday to repair a collapsed lung, his other organs are doing OK but they’re worried about long term care given his lungs “if he makes it”.
Not good but thought I’d pass it along.

Got this as an email today from a mutual friend.

Rick's Son sent a message that they’re taking him off the vent today and putting in a trach, decreasing meds to bring him back to consciousness in hopes his lungs will start to heal. He is now virus free but a long road to recovery.[/B]
