When I joined the Marine Corps I took an oath to defend the United States of America and its people. Last week 20 year old Kaylee Muthart was given some bad street drugs which caused her to "freak out" and she gouged out her eyes causing permanent blindness. As a Marine as an American I feel compelled to do something. Please join us in a special fundraiser for Kaylee who will forever live with a mistake of her youth.

Thank you, Kenny
