Pfc Duncan Crookston

I know there are a lot of people who are very concerned about Duncan Crookston who was severly injured in Iraq. This morning, I found a page on a military forum that includes updates from his mother-in-law. The latest update was in November, but things looked encouraging at the time.

A trust fund has been set up. You can donate by stopping at any Chase Bank and directing your donation to: Duncan Crookston Trust, Chase Bank, Acct. # 1635716796, Routing #102001017. Also, you can make a check payable to Duncan Crookston Trust. Mail it to: Meaghun Crookston c/o Powless Guest House, 3298 George C. Beach Rd, Ft. Sam Houston, TX 78234.

May God bless Duncan and this entire family, and may angels guide all the caregivers as Duncan struggles to heal.

Update: If you are reading this post, you probably sadly know that Duncan passed away on January 25. For information about his funeral, go to this post.

Thanks for this, Sharon. Turns out I work with Duncan's Aunt. I wanted to donate to his Trust and needed the address.

Sharon said...

You're welcome, Steve. Please let Duncan's aunt know that many people are praying for Duncan. We are hoping for the best for him.


I'm in Duncan's Platoon here still in Iraq and with your permission I would like to repost this. Thank you.

Sharon said...

Please do repost this.

Also, please know that you are in my prayers. It was three years ago that my son was in Iraq over Christmas. I know that it is not easy for you or your family.

Have a Merry Christmas and may the months move quickly by until you come home again.
