****UPDATE*****An update on the legal aspects of the case****
At the super secret Navy place where I can hang but not post, I have read and enjoyed and learned from Swosanity. Now, he needs a hand. His fellow Sailors and we in the extended Navy blogosphere want to step up and offer what help we can.

VIRGINIA BEACH - A double-shooting last week at a home in Virginia Beach could have stemmed from a "domestic situation" between the husband and wife who were seriously injured, police say.
Jacob and Kendra Johnson were found shot in their home on Springbreeze Court on Friday morning.
A relative had come to check on them after being unable to contact them for several days, and he found the two adults suffering from gunshot wounds and their two children - ages 2 and 4 - unharmed in a bedroom. Police spokesman Jimmy Barnes said detectives have not yet determined when the two people were shot.
Both gunshot victims are at Sentara VIrginia Beach General Hospital. A hospital spokesman said Jacob Johnson has been upgraded to serious condition, but Kendra Johnson remains in critical condition.
The children are in the care of a family member.
Swosanity is Kendra's father.
Kendra's injuries are very serious. She will be blind and paralyzed. There is a long road ahead for her and her family. Right now there are basically two things most of us can do to help - pray for Kendra and those who love her...........and donate money to help defray what will most certainly be enormous medical expenses.
Right now donations may be made through the Navy Federal Credit Union. You may go directly to a branch or wire money to the account. The savings account is named "Kendra Johnson Fund" and if you go in person you can make a deposit into the account by name. For wire transfers, the account number is 3014797462. NFCU routing # is 2560-7497-4.
There will be a way to donate via paypal soon and I will update this as soon as I have the info.
For now, give what you can. Remember the family in your prayers.
Thanks, I appreciate it.
