First Day..........


"I work at the Men's and Women's Trauma Recovery Program at The Menlo Park VA. Our program's mission is to serve military men and women who are suffering from the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. On behalf of our entire program, I want to personally thank you for donating the WII Fit. The Wii gaming system offers opportunities for our patients to actively interact with one another, which is different from other gaming systems. For example four people can actually play tennis or baseball, which helps them engage with one another, and reduce isolation. The Wii fit will allow our patients to actively exercise with others and gives them another avenue to engage in healthy habits. With your donation, you are working with us to help support each person's recovery and building the foundation for a better quality of life for our veterans and active duty service members." - Melissa Puckett, Recreation Therapist/Supervisor, January 2009

Wolf,
I just made a donation. Our military deserve always the best and most important too the support even after they have made their commitment. That poster of 'Any Regrets' is powerful. Since I have been following the militry over these last 12 years, and I read quite a bit and involve myself as I am financially able, they are the ones whom the reps on that Hill we call DC should be acting like. It is sickning to me how this gubbamint acts and works when compared to our soldiers jobs.

And I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but what is even more egracious is that basturd they have to call their CoC. My thanks and gratefulness to all of them and to those like yourself and others love them and support them, not with words but with actions. OOH RAH!
