Not sure we'd have ever heard about "Fast and Furious" and the guns it sent to Mexican drug cartels if it hadn't been for Mike.
David Codrea conveys Vanderboegh's health update, and makes a request:
More at Codrea's War on Guns blog.Per Mike, the doctors have told him he is not long of this world. As we all know, his financial situation due to years of disability and devotion to the larger issue of self-sacrifice for freedom is terrible. He is doing what he can to get his affairs in order, but the reality is, his wife will be left in really bad shape. I would like to help with a funding appeal.I looked at various "crowdfunding" sites, but there are hoops to jump through and/or a cut they take. For now at least, in order to get the ball rolling and hopefully growing as it does, I'm asking all of Mike's friends to spread the word and to send gratitude offerings directly to him:Paypal to email@example.com*Check, money order, cash, etc. to Mike Vanderboegh, PO Box 926, Pinson, AL 35126.**
