Military Ministry Limo and Lunch for Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Fisher Houses.

Eleven (11) Wounded, Ill and Injured (WII) Service Members and their families and caregivers accompanied our Chariots-for-Hire Limo Driver and FUMC Escort, Ed McMeans, to Tony and Joe’s Seafood on the Potomac River in Georgetown. The day was nice enough for some to take a walk on the Potomac boardwalk!

Six (6) WIIs accompanied us representing the U.S. Marine, Army and Navy service branches.

Our limo riders are being treated for a wide range of wounds, injuries and illnesses such as leg injuries, injury from a Recoilless Rifle and TBI. We had a young Army man who is getting ‘completely rebuilt’ in WRNMMC, Bethesda from ankles to back of neck for many months receiving back surgeries, knee replacements and shoulder surgery among other minor ‘repairs’.

As is typical for each of our Limo and Lunch events, everyone had a super time chatting and enjoying the fellowship.

As we were departing the Marine in our group offered his heart felt ‘Semper Fi” to all of us.

As we often say in the Navy – “It just don’t get any better than this”!
