My husband Benjamen Burlew is a J6 defendant. He went to Washington, DC to stand with other patriots peacefully and to pray for our nation on January 6, 2021, but what happened that day at the hands of the CP and those working on behalf of the government and the events that have occured thereafter have caused sheer terror for my family and so many like ours. Violations of privacy, being followed, being targeted and discriminated against, alienation from family, etc. The financial hardship has been horrific and God is the only reason we've been able to make it. The mental anguish has taken a terrible toll on my husband's PTSD. 

My husband, a decorated veteran, is also disabled with severe PTSD from combat..not to mention many other disabilities caused from combat. He is completely disabled due to his service-connected disabilities from honorably and valorously fighting for our country for many years.. the same country that has now seemingly turned its back on the people who love it the most and seem to have forgotten that without these brave men and women...none of us would be free. 

I am once-widowed, my first husband passed away in a car wreck in 2019 and my children lost their biological father at that moment as well...now the government is trying to take Ben/their only dad on this planet from us too..he's facing 31 years if he doesn't plea.. I have lost virtually all of my income (after having been self-employed since I was 25) as a result of all of the ongoing stuff with his J6 case and we are barely getting by...and the travel expenses etc are going to bear an additional burden on my family that we do not need. We also homeschool our children.

We have reached out for help from family members and friends (a few of them did help how they could), banks, congressmen, senate, churches, our AG, our Governor, and various attorneys...to no avail because they either don't realize what is actually going on in our country or they "don't agree" with him having gone on J6.. what they don't understand is that my husband only went to DC on January 6, 2021 to pray for our nation and to peacefully protest the stolen election...for no other reason.

My husband has been discriminated against and preyed upon because of his PTSD and it is not right. He has lost visitation with his biological son because of J6. We haven't gotten to see his son since May of 2021 and haven't been allowed any contact since March of this year because the courts are so crooked and rigged. We have not been able to fight this as no one will fight for my husband's rights as a father because he is a J6 defendant and no one wants to touch it.  Our country's justice system needs to be overhauled. 

Please help soften the financial burden that all of this has caused if you feel led to do so... there has been so much mental anguish and duress that we have all had to endure...especially my poor husband who's doing his best to battle his PTSD with Jesus. He's in Bible college and pursuing a ministry degree online...and I hope you get the opportunity to hear him preach one day. 

Any help that you can offer our family will be greatly appreciated and we pray a blessing on you for even considering helping our family just to survive this whole stressful ordeal. And prayer works...we will take all of those you can send us. 

My husband's trial is upcoming. 

Thank you to all of those fighting this fight with us. We appreciate you all. Our only true hope is in Jesus, though. Never forget that. And in the end...God wins!

God Bless America!
