When I was asked to join the Marines and others in spreading holiday cheer around the Veterans Affairs Hospital in the District, I rearranged my schedule to be sure that I could go – how could I miss the opportunity to give back to those who have given so much for me??
It was certainly a night to remember! We visited, distributed holiday treats, played Bingo, posed for pictures with Santa, and listened to the stories of a lot of people who really have some to tell!
I do want to send a special note to my new friend, Jason, who didn’t seem to want to let me go… and Ron, whose enthusiasm for life was absolutely inspiring. And to all of the Marines who so unselfishly gave of their time, thank you for including me in such a wonderful effort.
