Hi,

My name is Josuar Crowley I am a Iraq war vet who served between 2007-2011 I was deployed during 2008-2009. I earned an Army Achievement medal for my actions during my deployment. Once I got out of the Army in May of last year I started a job but it dried up and I started unemployment benefits which I have now run out of. I went through a very messy engagement to a horribly violent women in which has left me with almost nothing. Its so bad I sold my bed and have been sleeping on a inflatable mattress for the last 7 months. During the time together I stupidly racked up enough debt that I now pay 2k a month in bills not including fuel or food. I have made some bad decisions financially and would like to pay off some of it so I can bring my monthly bills down. 

I never thought it would be so hard to find a job after I lost my first one. It has been a rough two years since I have been out and I live month by month not knowing if I will make my next rent or car payment. I am also a aspiring comedian and a student at ITT Tech for graphic design which I figured would help me get a job but I have run out of money and have no where else to turn. I have used my local vet resources to help pay my rent and since my parents live in NH and I live in WA and they have no money to give and I feel guilty that I have not been able to pay them back. 

I read a story today of another Iraq veteren who sold his medal and the amount of support for him and his family was overwhelming. This man was deserving of what he made once he sold the medal and I understand having a family to support is more important then my plea since luckly I only have to support myself so if anything I only have myself to let down instead of a family. 

I have run out of options and hope that I can make anything off these. I really just want to follow my dream as a stand up comedian and go to school since I believe education is valuable I'm just afraid I will become another homeless veteren. Even knowing that I could maybe pay some bills down I sit here and cry writing this knowing that I have to give up something that I worked hard to obtain and is special to me. I also believe that if I am homeless that these will do me no good. So please even if you don't bid just thank any soldier you may see or vet because we sacrafice a lot of things but sometimes struggle after we get out and its nice to atleast be acknowledged for what we have done. If you win the auction I will write you a letter thanking you for your generosity I will also include the combat patch I received with the certificate.

Sorry as well about the horrible grammar and spelling but I was very emotional writing this and now since there is a bid it won't let me go back and fix these errors.
