Maryland Gold Star Mothers along with Warrior Events provided 100 lunches to our warriors at Walter Reed on November 10, 2021, which was also the Marine Corps 246th Birthday!
Warrior Events President, John O’Leary, along with Janice Chance, and Theresa Karlson helped deliver the lunches to the ward, where wounded warriors received several food options including brisket, chicken, pork, and macaroni and cheese purchased from Mission BBQ. Linda Rasnake, who is also the Family Readiness Support Assistant at Walter Reed, thanked the Moms and John for helping distribute lunches to the warriors.
John O’Leary from Warrior Events presented a Certificate of Appreciation to the Maryland Chapter that was signed by several warriors who are patients at Walter Reed. Janice and Theresa also received a special challenge coin from CSM Brian Yost, Sergeant Major of the Soldier Recovery Brigade National Capital Region.
Several warriors expressed their thanks for the donated lunches and for our support.
