Chevy Chase Community Reflections

I got the opportunity to meet a soldier and family from my home state of Idaho today at Walter Reed and I am absolutely blown away by the courage and humility I saw in these people. The soldier, his wife, and his young daughter were all welcoming and friendly and so willing to share. When I handed this man a piece of the flag and thanked him for his service, he thanked me for my sincerity. He told me most of the time when people told him that he wanted to punch them in the face, but he could tell the Girls Nation Senators meant it. I will never forget that moment.

  1. I am so thankful for the opportunity you had to go to Walter Reed and share time with wounded warriors and their families. What an awesome experience. Know that I'm watching out for Idaho Spuds this week--enjoy every minute. Tell your SR. Counselor Linda I said hello
