Ugly Betty needs a boost...

Some of my readers have met and others might remember my friend Michael Heidebrecht aka Ugly Betty.  He took over at the Grubshack for a week while Betty was on vacation years ago.  http://thefieldlab.blogspot.com/2009/08/ugly-betty.html 

Michael is in a VA hospital in Kansas working through debilitating health issues he picked up while serving our country as a United States Marine. When I took my concealed handgun course, Michael was just to the left of me when we did the shooting portion of the test.  It was rather difficult to concentrate on the target with his spent shell casings bouncing off my head.   I would appreciate it if EVERYONE who reads this blog post take the time to say a prayer and send a postcard to thank him for his service to our country and tell him The Field Lab sent you.  Just a quick note and a stamp would mean the world to my good friend and neighbor.
Here is the address:

Robert J Dole VA
5500 E Kellogg
ATTN: Michael Heidebrecht, TLC Unit Room 145
Wichita, KS  67219

They have started coming in to the hospital and if they continue in the manner that they are coming, the hospital mail room will be bringing back sacks of letters.
The look on his face was priceless. His sisters and mom helped him open them. Thank you all. Lynn Musall, caregiver of Michael Heidebrecht.
