VANITY- Darkhorse Marines at Bethesda - Doing the Lord's Work
Self ^ | 12/10/2010 | SELF

Posted on 12/10/2010 6:02:08 PM PST by SERKIT

Please offer up prayers of support to our wounded warriors. A Marine from the 3/5 (Darkhorse) - a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom (first push across the border in 2003) - was severely injured while re-deployed in Afghanistan. He received excellent treatment and is at Bethesda Naval Hospital now. A group of 3/5 Marine veterans are taking turns traveling out to to support him and his family. While they are there, they are assisting other families, have canceled their own hotel rooms, and are drawing "Fire Watch" overnight to talk to, console, and "be there" for what they call a "Time for Healing".

One way to support several programs is to go to www.resolutiongear.com and purchase RG merchandise. Proceeds go to MANY projects and programs to help our wounded heroes.

FREEPERS CERTAINLY SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!

Pardons for the plug, but RG is run by a 3/5 wounded veteran of OIF, he is a motivational speaker, and an overall excellent example of a Marine.

Thanks for this great post. This 3/5 vet can't make it - knee replacement surgery on Monday the 13th - otherwise I would be there!

Semper Fidelis!

Christmas Cards

When doing your Christmas cards this year, take one card and send it to
this address. If we pass this on and everyone sends one card, think of
how many cards the wonderful special people who have sacrificed so
much would get. A Great Idea!!!

When you are making out your Christmas card list this year, please include the following:

A Recovering American Soldier

c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center

6900 Georgia Avenue, NW

Washington, D.C. 20307-5001

One of the guys out there is my son-in-law, so I’m taking some pride in this, too. He is traveling with the owner of RG. I’ve been keeping in touch with them. I thought it was “typical Marine” to cancel their hotel rooms and just stay overnight at Bethesda for a few days ‘to help out’. Oooooh Rah!!!
