Vietnam Veteran's Needs Help Fulfilling Last Wish!

Vietnam Veteran Delmar Lilly wants to go home!
Posted on Facebook by the Facebook group "Vietnam Veterans" on March 6, 2012.

I think it is important to post this: 

An open letter to ANYONE that can help.

A dear friend to many and a Nitro High Graduate 1967, Nitro, WV, is losing his battle with lung cancer as I write. He and his family live in Shallotte, North Carolina.

He was at Duke University, however, he now is at the Mayo Clinic, in Jacksonville, Florida. There is nothing more that the doctors can do for him, and he wants to go home to die. Returning home in their RV is out of the question. 

They have located an ambulance service that will drive him home for $3,000.00. Jay Rockefeller's office in Washington were asked for help and we were told, the military would airlift him home, HOWEVER, the government would need to be paid $6,000.00 first.

I told everyone that he is a Vietnam Veteran, and the very least our country can do for him as a last ditch effort to thank him for his service, is to get him home to die.

ANY donations would be appreciated by Delmar and his family to get him HOME.

Checks should be made payable to Brenda Lilly
Post Office Box 3288, Shallotte, North Carolina 28459

For more information on how you can help please contact:
Pat Sharp or The Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, re: Delmar Lilly.
