New Program Began May 2014: Warrior Support Team
After 7 years of support to Purple Heart Heroes and Families, we've moved forward with a new program, Warrior Support Team, to focus on the needs of all returning warriors including wounded, ill, injured, and those living with PTS/COS (Post Traumatic Stress/Combat Operational Stress), as well as the needs of their family members and caregivers. To learn more and see our current work, visit WarriorSupportTeam.com.

Walter Reed 2013 Wounded Hero Thanksgiving

Marine Parents and Purple Heart hero Support (PHHS) were recently informed that the Military Liason Officer (MLO) Family Support Coordinator at Walter Reed Walter Reed National Military Medical Center was in need of turkeys for six families at the hospital. After receiving the appropriate authorizations to purchase the turkeys and sides, our PHHS-East volunteers got to work planning this special occasion.

Volunteer Mary Ann found festive holiday bags and filled them with cranberry sauce, stuffing mix, corn, and beans. Volunteer Susan bought the six smallest turkeys she could find, as the ovens in Tranquility Hall aren't large at all, and the dinner supplies were dropped off with Mia at Building 62 last Friday, November 22.

Mia was exceedingly grateful, as she hadn't been expecting anything more than the turkeys (clearly she's not familiar with how we do things at PHHS!), and she told us that while some of the other families in the hall were going to cook their Thanksgiving dinners at their on-base apartments, others were able to head home for the holiday but are planning a group turkey dinner when they return to the base this Saturday.

As the holidays approach, many of us will begin to reflect on the important things in our lives and who or what it is that we're thankful for. At Marine Parents and PHHS, we are thankful for our Wounded Heroes. We are thankful for the immense sacrifices these brave men and women have made on our behalf. We are thankful for the Marines, Corpsmen, and doctors who got them home alive and have given them a chance at recovery. We are thankful for the family members who have dropped everything and put their lives on hold to be with a loved one during the long and difficult recovery process. And we are thankful that these Wounded Heroes allow us to be a small part of their lives and to share in their indomitable zest for life as they navigate the recovery process on the way to discovering their "new normal." The spirit these men and women display is truly remarkable and is inspirational to be around and we'd like to wish them the happiest of holiday seasons and the swiftest of recoveries.
