YELLOW RIBBON FUND INC
October 14, 2013
Yellow Ribbon Fund took care of us when no one else would. I arrived at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on a weekend to greet my wounded husband, with a newborn son and 3 year old daughter in tow. No one is in the offices there on the weekends and my kids desperately needed a place to rest other than the hospital. YRF paid for our hotel room for those first few nights until the Army had cut us orders to stay at the hotel on base. Later in my husband's recovery, when he could leave the hospital they took us to base ballgames. This seems inconsequential but it gave our entire family a break from the hospital enviornment. It made our daughter feel special and let us smile and laugh together. We're eternally grateful for that. Our daughter's best Walter Reed memories are going with the Yellow Ribbon Fund to see the National's play. And my husband's first solo trip without me was on a Yellow Ribbon Fund tour of a battlefield. That trip gave him confidence that he could do somethings on his own despite his physical limitations. Yellow Ribbon Fund provides not just assistance for wounded warrior families, but they build hope as well.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would love to see them have the ability to set up at Brook Army Medical Center in Texas and Polytrauma in Tampa Florida. Those are also 2 very major hospitals that wounded warriors can be sent to instead of Walter Reed.
