The U.S. Army is made up of the most dedicated, most respected soldiers in the world. These soldiers protect America's Freedoms while serving at home and abroad, and they are always prepared to defend the nation in times of need.
We are soldiers of the sea, providing forces and detachments to naval ships and shore operations. We are global leaders, developing expeditionary doctrine and innovations that set the example, and leading other countries' forces and agencies in the multinational military operations. These unique capabilities make us "First to Fight", and our nations first line of defense.
America's Navy is a force as relevant today as it's been historically significan for the last 238 years. The times may change, the threats may become more obscure, the complex nature of 21st century life may make the demand for such presence less obvious. However, now more than ever, the Navy is something to be aware of Something to be thankful for. Something to be proud of.
Air Force has a vision of Global Vigilance, Reach and Power. That vision orbits around three core competencies: developing airmen, technology to war fighting and integrating operations. These core competencies make our six distinctive capabilities possible.
We protect the personal safety and security of our people; the marine transportation system and infrastructure; our natural and economic resources; and the territorial integrity of our nation-from both internal and external threats, natural and man-made.

I PRAY THAT YOU WILL ANSWER THIS URGENT NEED FOR HELP
My name is Kenneth Corl. My friends know me as K.O. Corl. My address is 15748 Brookridge Blvd, Brooksville, FL. I am a Marine and a Vietnam Veteran. My wife and I are life members of the VFW and VFW Auxiliary respectively. I am a life member of the Marine Corps League and the DAV. I am also a member of the Knights of Columbus, Council 17531. We are also members of St. Anthony the Abbott Catholic Church. I was diagnosed with chronic Kidney Disease six years ago. As a result my kidneys have been steadily declining in their ability to function. Because of their continuous decline, my doctor has referred me for a kidney transplant and I am on the National Kidney Transplant List. It could take years to get one because there are so many people in need of organs. A living donor could lessen the amount of time I would have to wait and save my life. I am asking for your help. Please consider becoming a living donor for me. I am also preparing myself for the eventual need for dialysis should a donor remain unavailable. Donation costs are covered by my medical insurance so doing this would require no out of pocket costs to you. The information you share will be kept confidential with the transplant team. If you would consider being my living donor please complete the form at www.largomedical.com/signmeup or call Anna Harrop the Living Donor Coordinator at the Transplant Institute of Florida in Largo Medical Center on 727-588-5618. Be sure to include my name, Kenneth Corl, as the person for whom you are willing to be a donor. Thank You in advance for your consideration and help.
May God Bless You,
Kenneth (K. O.) Corl
