WST–East Has Record-Breaking Dinner!
Added August 4, 2016
MarineParents.com, Inc.® believes that the highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of ensuring that all men and women who have borne arms for our country are cared for and supported in an adequate manner upon their return to America and reintegration into society.
With that in mind, our Warrior Support Team™ (WST) strives to provide resources and fellowship to wounded, ill, and injured troops and veterans, including those living with post-traumatic stress, as well as to provide resources and support to family members.
WST volunteers serve meals, assist at events, provide resources to enhance the comfort of patients, and distribute educational materials at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, California.
We are proud to announce that, after nine years of serving meals to recovering warriors, our mission remains strong. In fact, at our July 24 dinner at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, we had a record number of attendees show up. In all, approximately 115 people were served at the USO and an additional 25 were served at the TBI and Behavioral Health wards of the hospital. The line at the USO was so long that it was literally out the door!
Many people make these dinners possible--The dedicated volunteers of the Warrior Support Team, the supporters of the EGA shop whose purchases help fund the dinners, the Paul E. Singer Foundation and other generous individual donors, the USO staff, and California Tortilla of Bethesda Maryland, who gives us a generous military discount. We'd like to extend our thanks to all, and we look forward to continuing to serve our military at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and elsewhere.
