Thankful for Their Service

I have enjoyed another opportunity to participate in a dinner service with the Armed Forces Foundation, this time at the Bethesda Naval Hospital. This was my first experience at this facility. What a wonderful display of appreciation, gratitude and humility.
The event's dinner was sponsored by Vanguard Management and The Bernstein Companies, as usual the AFF did a wonderful job and the wounded warriors along with their families were treated to a thanksgiving feast like no other. Turkey with all of the trimmings (all home made!) and desserts that made everyone's mouth water!
I learned the story of Garth (left), wounded and at the hospital for 3 months now - and the stories of many others. There was even a Marine present who just graduated at Parris Island the day before - young and willing to stand for our freedom.
