a friend in need

***Update!  Here's a direct link to Stashiu's donation account, more than legal help, he needs help with the costs.  Stash sends his thanks to all you morons for all your best wishes, advice and donations***

On Sunday I asked for your prayers for a friend, noting that I would likely have more details in the week, and indeed I do.  As I'm sure most of you know, I watch over the Moronosphere with a close eye, and was shocked to see this post at our friend Stashiu's, early this weekend.

For a little background on Stash, he served honorably in the Army for 24 years, most of that time was spent as a psychiatric nurse, some of you may remember Stashiu's multi-part interview at Patterico's Pontifications, where he spoke about his time as a Psychiatric Nurse at Guantanamo Bay.  He's always been a good source and unique perspective on issues of terrorist detainees and detention policy, particularly with Guantanamo.

Stashiu is the proud father of two adopted daughters.  Unfortunately, Stash later found that the lawyer who was supposed to square away all the legal paperwork for the adoption didn't quite get it right, so he has to now backtrack with new lawyers to get things right and finally seal the deal.  The process is costing Stash and his family a king's ransom. 

The tough financial situation and worry over the prospect of losing his two daughters is unsurprisingly starting to wear him down and take a toll on his health.  Several people have been in contact with him over the weekend and suggested he start up a donation account.  Stash now has an Amazon account, the Amazon widget should appear on his right sidebar, if you can help, it would be a wonderful thing.  Even if you don't have the financial means to offer any any help, offer him your prayers and best wishes.  Stash is a damn good guy, a good father and has given over two decades of service to our nation, let's see what we can do to can help him.
