Angels Vern, Erin, Jill, Debbie, Melissa, Charlotte, and families had the honor of visiting with Veterans at the Puget Sound VA (seattle)  for the National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans festivities!  Thank you angels.

“The 30 bears we handed out were a huge success.”  (these are our Grratitude bears you can make too-ask us about them!)

“leaving them was probably one of the hardest things I done in a while……One guy I talked to gave me a big hug and was asking me to come back and visit again…..What will it take to be able to go and visit them again soon?
This was a great weekend. ”

I was told by one of the ladies that I had an angelic smile 🙂 And then again by one of the patients that I had helped with opening up his gum. He had said I had such a smile that no wonder I was an angel. Sure made my day. He has been in my mind since then.”

“And the vets? Oh my! Everyone was so gracious and thankful. It was so good I have decided to begin my weekly visits… I was humbled and thankful.”

Showing the love, respect and gratitude! Thanks angels and THANK YOU VETERANS!!

Thanks also to our Angel Crew for providing a Valentine’s visit to our American Lake Veterans. If you’d like to visit at a VA nearest you with Soldiers’ Angels email soldiersangelswashington @gmail.com or contact your local VA voluntary Services.

Today on the Oprah show, “First lady Michelle Obama, Tom Brokaw and Bob Woodward introduce us to some of the bravest families in America as they cope with the invisible wounds of war.” http://www.oprah.com/showinfo/The-Bravest-Families-in-America

Former South Dakota Army National Guardsman Sgt. Corey Briest (Ret.) and his wife, Jenny were among the guests. Briest, of Yankton, was seriously injured by a roadside bomb near Baghdad,Dec. 4, 2005, while serving with Battery C, 1st Battalion, 147th FieldArtillery, South Dakota Army National Guard, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. … Soldiers’ Angels have stood with Corey and Jenny since his injury.”

The message of the show was simple…..be grateful, never forget and DO something to show your support.

If you want to do something and are not sure what to do go to soldiersangels.org We have many teams you can join such as the wounded TLC team which helped show support to Jenny and Corey.

Do you live in Washington and would you like to help?? Email soldiersangelswashington @gmail.com  We need you!

Soldiers’ Angels is an all encompassing organization that is dedicated to supporting our Deployed, Wounded, Veterans and their families. As Tom Brokaw, Bob Woodward, Oprah and the First Lady said today…..it takes the communities to step up to make a difference.  “We owe them everything”…..therefore we all must do something.

I look forward to hearing from you!
