Opening new Casualty Care Center in 2008.
Each December, the Severely Wounded Counselor selects toys from our warehouse for families of the severely wounded. A thank you received in December 2009:
Hi Barbara. I wanted to thank you for allowing Sonja and I to come over to the warehouse and pick out Christmas gifts for the children of our wounded service members here at the Naval Hospital and surrounding area. Sonja and I were overwhelmed at the toys there and it made a lot of children very happy. We had several injured service members who literally had nothing to give their children. In fact I had one combat injured Marine mother whose two little girls had put several small gifts under the tree for mommy, and then asked where their gifts were. Thanks to you (and SDMOM) there were gifts for these little girls! Thank you very much again. Steve Vargo, MS, Counselor Advocate, Military Severely Injured Center
