Walter Reed Cookies
Acting against my best advice because I’m not feeling well, we went to Walter Reed tonight to hand out Girl Scout cookies to wounded soldiers. We received so many orders that we just ran out of boxes to put them all in. Anissa got a lot more donations for cookies while we were set up at a flea market. (the pictures are best viewed with Mozilla Firefox. If the pictures take up the whole page, you’re still stuck with the inferior Internet Explorer.)
We started at Malogne House where we set up a table and tried to give out as many as we could. It didn’t take long before the soldiers were humbly accepting your love and support of them.
After we left the Malogne house, we went to Fisher House and handed over about 15 boxes to the families there. We took what we had left to Ward 57 of Walter Reed. Many of the soldiers there have been there just a few weeks or less. Once we had handed out all the cookies, we went outside to thank the Free Republic for being out there and supporting our troops against the vile Code Pink morons down the block some. I just have to share the huge signs they had made up.
