I just wanted to send you an email and let you know that what the Blue Star Mothers of America organization is doing is so important and is truly a blessing. I was born and raised in Oklahoma and I am an Army nurse at Walter Reed. As you probably know, we get a great number of wounded warriors who are not only physically injured, but some are also emotionally hurting as well. Some of these men and women have numerous visitors, which I believe makes their transition much easier. However, there are some who don't get many visitors, for whatever reason, and I think that this can take an emotional toll on them because they feel as though no one cares about them or appreciates their service, which is not the case at all. As a nurse and soldier my words can only go so far with these soldiers. It means the most to them when they hear good things from someone outside the military.
Today I saw your group of people when you came to visit some of our wounded warriors and I got to talking to a gentleman who's mother is in your organization (I think his name might be Daniel). I noticed that he was wearing a Sooners hat and asked if he was from OK (who else, but a true Sooners fan would wear a Sooners hat this season?!). He told me why y'all were there and that y'all had just been to visit some soldiers. I know that the soldiers that you all visited greatly appreciate the time that y'all take out of your schedules to come all the way to DC just to visit with them and let them know they ARE appreciated and what they do IS important.
I work with these soldiers day in and day out and I can always tell when someone has been by to see them because they are in greater spirits and are smiling more.. So thank you all for your caring hearts, your loving spirits, and your smiling faces. Your support is what keeps our soldiers going in times like these.
Have a great weekend and God bless!
