That’s why we’re proud to share our experience with Operation Ward 57. Our founder and president Doug Cox is the treasurer of this organization, which has been crucial in fighting for better care and conditions for our wounded veterans.
Doug recently went to Washington, D.C. to check in on the opening of the new and improved facility, throw a holiday party and let our soldiers know how much their selfless dedication means to all of us.
It was an amazing experience, and one that Doug won’t soon forget. Our wounded warriors – who literally risked life and limb, and often lost the latter – repeatedly proclaimed that they would do it all over again in a heartbeat. We are humbled to know these men and women, be a part of this organization and are committed to continuing to make a difference in how our brave soldiers are treated.
A bit of Doug’s experience in his own words:
It was heavy but it gave me a great sense of pride to be there and to see the appreciation everyone had for us including the staff. We fed about 250 people, gave out gift bags to all the wounded warriors, and gave gift-wrapped presents to all of their children.
