Note: On a personal note, I've known Bob and Susan for many, many years. They have given much to the community and to many individuals. My heart goes out to them as they hurt with their child and work to do everything they can to help him heal. I encourage everyone reading this to reach out to help in some manner based on your familiarity with the Berschinski family, your belief in helping a neighbor, or your concern for our soldiers. - Janet McGregor Dunn
