A member of the Louisiana National Guard has fought overseas and now is facing a battle back home.

SSGT Milton Love, his wife and two daughters lost everything in a house fire in Gretna on Thursday.

Now, a local Terrytown non-profit, Military Advocacy Project of Louisiana is seeking help from the community to help the Love family get back on their feet again.

Shawn Cronan, Executive Director for the Military Advocacy Project of Louisiana is spearheading a labor of love project for the soldier.

“We are obligated to take care of these heroes that provide us with freedom, every single day,”  Cronan said.

They are asking for donations, clothing, money, home appliances, furniture, e.t.c.

“Anything to make this family whole again.  We’re even going to be looking for a new place for them to live.  They have nothing except the clothes that were on their backs when they escaped from the fire,”  Cronan said.


They are accepting donations at their Terrytown office at 405 Blue Bonnet St.   Any monetary donations can be made via PayPal on their website at http://www.laadvocacy.org.
