TOURING WALTER REED

Blackfive was in Washington D.C. last week and stopped by Walter Reed Medical Center to visit with our wounded.

"Most people may not understand what it's like to be there - most might not like hospitals (which is understandable), but Walter Reed is not like most hospitals and the men and women that are there recovering from their wounds are not like most people you'll ever meet."

While there, B5 met other bloggers and made the rounds with them.

"We were able to meet Joshua Sparling and his father and one of his buddies from his unit. AWTM mothered Joshua with warm words. I talked with his father about his recovery." Remember Joshua?

This wasn't B5's first trip to Walter Reed, but it was the most memorable. Read his post that describes what it's like to visit the center.

"If I can't pick up a rifle, I have to do something."--B5
