On Memorial Day 2008 Dr Harch spoke at a picnic hosted by the Blue Star Mothers Association
Memorial Day, 2008 Picnic hosted by the Blue Star Mothers Association. The President of the Louisiana chapter is Sandra Hearn.
Dear Dr. Harch:
Our family would like to thank you and your staff for the greatest gift you could possibly give to a person – the gift of life. We thank you not only for your outstanding skills in the HBOT profession, but also your compassion for our troops that have given us our freedoms that we have today. You and your team have brought commitment and compassion to the table. My son, CPL Jake Mathers was injured in several explosions, one being on April 17, 2006. He went through a lot of testing, but no real treatment was offered. He was honorably discharged on November 10, 2008. He began treatment on December 1, 2008 and completed treatment last week.
My son who is now 21 years old, enlisted in the Marines at age 17. All he wants is to be able to live a “normal” life again. Dr. Harch and his team members treated him with the utmost respect and honor. Jacob always talked highly of those he came in contact with, and actually looked forward to taking his treatments daily.
