AAR – “Holiday Cheer 2016”

giftBeing far from home in a hospital over the Holidays is no fun.

We were grateful to once again have the opportunity to bring some “Holiday Cheer” to recovering Marines at the hospital.

 

On December 7, 2016 Marine Moms-Bethesda delivered gifts and cards to the Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Battalion-East Detachment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. This was our 10th year bringing cheer to patients!

The car is packed and ready to head over to Walter Reed!

By all accounts, we’ve heard the “3rd Annual American Heroes Dinner” hosted by Honoring The Sacrifice Foundation was very enjoyable!

It was an honor to be involved as a sponsor for three VIP tables through the generosity of an anonymous donor.  Thank you for supporting this organization that is helping to better the lives of those who have sacrificed so much on our Nation’s behalf.

“Elfs” in the Chattanooga area helped us get the word out and fill the seats.  Thank you!

Special thanks to Mr. John Shackleford for sharing his personal photographs from the dinner with us.  It was nice being able to place the names on our guest list with pictures of our guests.

The Day:

We send out the call for sign-ups to our luncheon volunteers and they help when they can. Some months we have two or three, this month we had seven. Even though we staggered the arrival times, I thought we’d be knocking elbows with everyone in the room, and we were – until the line began to form.
