Today The Chive posted a story about Taylor to their fan base (several million people). Within two hours we have raised $50,000 for Taylor! TWO HOURS!

This is an awesome story written, awesome American people giving their money to Taylor to help with his recovery! Check out the story:




  1. Paula Chive says:

    Hell we've collected so much money meow they'll build a chain of cabins. And since they won't be living in all of those cabins of course they'll rent out the rest at insane prices since hey, there'll be plenty of demand. Tenants soon won't be able to pay the rent and mr. Morris will have to get medieval on their asses…
    We've created a monster… just wait and see…

  2. Terry Burke says:

    good stuff paula

  3. Hey Brother,
    I read your story and i got chills im so glad that you are making it through the rough times!! Me and my wife both hope you have a speedy recovery!!!

  6. Justin Lamb says:

    You gave so much, Taylor. Here is a little in return. KCCO!

  7. Jason in Atlanta says:

    Taylor, you are an inspiration to so many. You are a true American hero. Thank you for sacrificing so much for your country. Words cannot express my gratitude. Donation made, wish it could be more. KCCO

  8. Ashley Weger says:

    As has already been said countless times, our donation does not come close to representing the amount of respect and gratitude my husband (former U.S.M.C., ALWAYS U.S.M.C.) and I have for you. Stay strong Taylor. KCCO.

  9. Terry says:

    KCCO Taylor and Danielle. That new cabin better make the DAR πŸ™‚ aka: MAGSGQ

  10. Trampass and Bridget Gilbert says:

    This is Trampass and Bridget Gilbert we are from Georgia and my husband Trampass works with Taylor’s dad in Pensacola, Fla. Trampass is an electrician and he said he wants to wire Taylor and Danielle’s cabin for them. He wants to do it himself and wants Taylor to have all the best shit in the cabin so Taylor will not have to worry about a thing! So need to worry about getting the cabin wired it is taken care of when the time comes.

    Taylor you are a true American Hero. Thank you for your courage and bravery in keeping the United States safe. We wish you the best in your recovery and keep the motivation that you have always. You have a truly remarkable family that will always be by your side and that is a wonderful gift.

    Trampass and Bridget Gilbert

  23. charles colvin says:

    Hey shipmate. Found about you and just had to help out.
    As you are aware so many others have given more than limbs. I hope you don’t let any guilt-based feelings of being singled out while so many of our wounded brothers and sisters also soldier on in relative anonymity. YOU earned our respect and admiration as well. Besides a direct donation to you I’ve decided to go to the VA and see how I can help others. Thanks for showing me what really matters.

    Fair winds brother;

    AW1 (Ret)

    Taylor- saw your story on the Chive. Your enthusiasm and positive attitude about life and what you still want to accomplish even after what happend is nothing short of inspiring. Reading your story I couldn't help but think of a few people I care for- my cousin is a 2 tour Iraq/Afghanistan Special Forces captain, one of my best friends is a 2 tour Iraq Army vet, and another is a 2nd lieutenant in the Marines. In honor of them and support of you, I donated immediately. Wish the very best for you and your family. Enjoy that cabin on the lake.

  135. Former USN PO2 says:

    I am stunned and humbled by not only what Taylor has done with his EOD work but also (after reading this blog) The willingness of all the family members to immediately assume the critical role of Caregiver.

    A few years back I had the opportunity to spend a year volunteering at Bethesda and subsequently spent a good deal of time up on 7 West. It never ceased to amaze me the raw emotions that permeated the air to the point of being palpable… strength, honor, commitment, pride, loyalty….

    I truly hope that you continue to share this blog and your story, not only because I feel it is hugely cathartic and thus an instrument of healing… but also… I think it shines a much deserved light on the young men and women who serve their country as Corpsman, Drs, RNs, PTs, and OTs (civilian and active duty).

    Thank you for sharing this with us…. oh an KCCO!

  136. Wah Sun says:

    I’m one of the Chivers who donated, and I think I speak for all of us when I say we’re all so proud of Taylor and just happy that we can help. Taylor, enjoy that cabin, buddy. You’ve sure as hell earned it. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
