Maryland Patriot Guard Annual BBQ USO Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Bethesda, Maryland June 22, 2024

The Maryland Patriot Guard (MDPG) leaders Ann and Ted Nettles, invited MD Chapter Gold Star Mothers and other individuals to volunteer at their Annual BBQ.  Janice Chance represented the MD Chapter. She joined the Maryland Patriot Guard (MDPG) leaders Ted, MDPG members and other patriots in serving our wounded warriors, active duty service members and their families at the Walter Reed Medical Center USO facility.  The volunteers worked together well as a team throughout the event.  There was plenty of good food and wonderful fellowship.  The volunteers received many “thank you’s” from our Heroes, USO staff, and other civilian employees.  There was much laughter and smiles on the faces of our heroes and their children.  Ann Nettles estimated that there were about 120 individuals in attendance.  As always it was an honor to meet, serve, and thank some of our nation’s Heroes and their families.
