The following message is from Peggy Baker, President of Operation First Response (OFR).

"To all those that sent donations via Operation First Response for the Johnson family who tragically lost two of their children instantly in a car accident on the way to visit their father recovering at Brooke Army Medical Center from wounded he sustained in Iraq, we are forever grateful!

Unfortunately the family lost their third child this past Saturday also from injuries sustained in the car accident.

Operation First Response will be sending a check to the family for $1,500. This donation would not be possible without those that so generously gave. We can never take the pain this family is experiencing away but we can show them that we care and will be there for them.

God bless America and those that stand firm to protect us!

Peggy Baker
Operation First Response, Inc"

I put the amount in bold. I would also like to express my thanks to those who donated. I can't imagine what Lisa and John are going through with the loss of their children.
