The family and friends of Eric and Jillian are uniting to raise money to help with their living expenses. Just $5 or $10 helps.

Explosions, gunfire, violent death -- these horrific images and sounds are the reality for soldiers on the front lines, fighting for our freedom. But what happens when the horror follows them home…

Eric Price, 42, was once a Juvenile Corrections Officer supervisor. He is also an Army National Guard staff sergeant and returned to Muscogee YDC after he returned from Iraq. He was notified in writing in July that he would be released from his job after disclosing that he had been diagnosed with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).

Staff Sergeant Price went to his job to get some help through a program called EAP that his job offered. It is free counseling and he knew getting the proper help is crucial if you wish to regain the life you once enjoyed when suffering from PTSD. He was also trying to see if any modifications could be made to his current position. What he didn’t know was that by asking and disclosing his medical condition, his job would fire him.

Since losing his job, he has felt stress, fatigue, depression and tensions because he has a wife and three children at home to care for. His wife, Jillian, works but her income along with what Eric receives from the VA is not enough and her income was supposed to supplement his. Now they are falling behind and need some help. The money donated will be used to pay for daily living expenses and past due bills while Eric and Jillian have to live off of minimum income. They are trying to stay ahead for the next six months or so until Eric can find employment. Please keep Eric and Jillian in your prayers at this time! They need all your support and prayers to help them stay strong through this trial. All your generous contributions, thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated!!
