Verification Please

Any one know of a Gregory Hopkins? Former PJ, 100% disabled combat veteran. He sent me a link on FB to his fundraiser, and before I promote it to my circle of friends, I wanted to ask for a quick verification.

It sucks that we have to even do this kind of thing.

Thanks in advance!

More info if it is needed: He was in from 91-02. Was a PJ with the 210th out of Alaska. Now they're the 212th once they split from the helos and hercs.

Yes very good man. Has suffered for a long time with PTSD/TBI issues from a mission we were on together in 94. Friendly fire incident 2 F15's shot 2 blackhawks out of the sky in Iraq. We only had six body bags because the initial call was they shot 2 HINDs down and we were supposed to just get intel.

He was running a farm for disabled vets and the lady that was kind enough to let him lease the land for free has lost her way a bit and is booting him. Again good man, trying to do good things. Any other question please PM me.
