Walter Reed wounded warrior, Bree

Bree exudes confidence from every part of her body. Her gentle smile, humorous demeanor, and positive attitude lead one to think she never faced distress and horror in her life. As Bree shared her story in Afghanistan, one filled with terror, despair, and sadness; but I soon realized this was not a story of pity or regret, but a story of courage, honor, and hope. Today’s experience not only humbled me, but inspired me to be more thankful for the sacrifices made for my freedom. The experience was truly eye opening.
