Hello and Welcome to the first attempt I've made at blogging!
In the future, I hope to share with you some of the wonderful things the Wounded Warrior Support Team accomplishes here in the States. I'll share stories about the establishment of a team in a new base, the VALOUR IT program, our Transitional Backpacks, some team happenings and upcoming projects.
Let me give you a brief background of the team. It was established in November 2004 as a "card writing team" to our wounded warriors. 20 minutes later, the WWST was born and has been on the fast track since! What a ride it's been!! Working in conjunction with the Wounded TLC Team (the card writing team), Soldiers Angels is providing support to wounded warriors throughout the United States and Germany, even at times to our warriors who are recovering in theater.
We have small, vetted teams in most medical facilities who visit the wounded upon request. Our visiting teams are not "door knockers", they visit on a request basis. With the inception of the WTU's and WTB's, our teams are growing in leaps and bounds, establishing Soldiers Angels support in bases throughout the country. The support provided by the teams vary from a simple hello to taking a warrior or family member to the store; from bringing the warrior and/or family member home baked cookies to just sitting talking, the WWST's are there.
Between the VA Hospitals and these WTU's and WTB's, the support of our wonderful angels is so needed!! These areas are the areas that are and will be needing support in the future. I'm proud to say that Soldiers' Angels is establishing support in these facilities!!
