The vacation that the Wounded Warrior Family Support provided was more than just a vacation. It was more than just a room, family get together, or a little time at the beach. It was an answered prayer to what we needed this summer. We have not been able to get together as a family and go somewhere nice due to funding, calendars, or medical procedures. Everything came together for the most exciting weekend together as a family that we have had in more than a decade.
The location at Galveston could not have been better. We were able take a riverboat trip at Moody Gardens, visit the aquarium, and even went to the aviation museum. Wounded Warrior Family Support is really making a positive impact for combat injured veteran families. The reservation process, welcome package, t-shirts and wristbands were an awesome sight. My entire family thanks you for everything that has been done for us.
The steakhouse gift cards brought tears to my eyes. On top of all that you all have done for us, to even provide a wonderful meal was truly over the top. This month made one year since I had back surgery, ten months since medical retirement, and the first time my family has gone anywhere in a long.
I have attached a picture of us all on the last day. We all hated to leave, but we all have to get back to reality.
Thank you again!
