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!
