DPD Officer, Injured in Iraq, In Need of Help
|DPD Officer Andrew Litz|
Litz is on family medical leave at the moment. That's because in 2005, a year before he joined the force, he was serving in Iraq when his Humvee struck a land mine. When he was injured, according to the department's Facebook page this afternoon ...
... the military medical staff stated he was simply suffering from a bad concussion. Officer Litz has been suffering from severe migraines, making him extremely sick and unable to sleep. The doctors have now determined that he has a brain injury and are relating it back to the injury that was ruled a concussion while he was serving in Iraq. His situation has worsened.The Assist the Officer Foundation is trying to help Litz and his family pay the bills. But money's tight. Hence a fund-raising car wash scheduled Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Lone Eagle Fighting Arts at 525 W. Arapaho Road in Richardson. Or you can make a donation directly to Assist the Officer, which makes sure all money goes directly to the family.
