MLTW 2017 – Holiday Cards for Vets

From Sharon Lenius


The Wounded Warrior Pavilion and DeWitt Hospital, Ft Belvoir, VA and the Walter Reed National Medical Center, Bethesda, MD – Wounded Warrior Facilities were recipients of the Christmas/Holiday cards signed by attendees at the Military Libraries Training Workshop, 2017.  Our thanks to Ann Holman, Librarian at Walter Reed National Medical Center, Bethesda for very promptly delivering the signed cards.  She reports that in the future, the need is donations of cards so that the vets can send cards to friends and family.   Thanks for that tip, Ann.

My friend, Emily Clarke (from my National Guard/RCAS days) passed the cards designated for the Warrior Pavilion at Ft Belvoir, VA to the Red Cross Office there. Please see the attached note and photo.

Now my task tomorrow is to deliver cards to the Soldiers and Sailors Home in DC. Wish me luck…DC Traffic!

Many thanks to all who signed the cards and to our two Student Interns who staffed the table in Lincoln Hall, London and Reggie.


Thank you to Sharon from tracking this effort.
