We receive requests from our military hospitals, both here and abroad, as well as the field hospitals in Iraq and Afghanistan, who are treating those who are often able to return to the battlefield. At home, the needs are more centered on rehabilitation. Abroad, even clothing items and scrubs are in short supply.
Because the needs vary greatly and some requests have to be special ordered, like handi-pockets for wheelchairs and walkers, gait belts used to transport patients from bed to wheelchair, and knorks, a combination knife and fork used by our heroes who have lost use of one of their arms, we are asking only for monetary donations to purchase specifically requested items.
Sentinels of Freedom
The Blue Star Moms Chapter 101 fully support the Sentinels of Freedom Scholarship Program. With the help of ordinary citizens in our communities, Sgt. Manny Mendoza, Sgt. Victor Thibeault, Sgt. Donovan Speith, SSgt. Jay Wilkerson, and Petty Officer Manny Del Rio, who were severely injured in the Global War on Terrorism, have been welcomed into our lives and are now realizing their fullest potential.
