SAMMC Visit Dec. 2013

These are pictures from our December 8-9, 2013, trip to SAMMC (San Antonio Military Medical Center).  We held our annual free PX (Post Exchange - i.e., military store) on Monday, December 9.
Here is a picture of one of our volunteer youth groups: San Antonio Young Marines!
This picture reflects the size and magnitude of our free PX!  And this is just one side of the room!
Here are some of the members of our awesome TWU Veteran's Committee supporters/volunteers!  They are one fantastic, hard-working group of patriotic Americans!
Here are the smiling faces of some of our festive volunteers!  This awesome group flew in from Florida just to volunteer their time for our free PX!!
As you can see from the pictures below of our wounded soldiers and Marines, they really enjoyed our free PX!
Here is a wounded Marine and his wife with 4 members of a church youth group:

These 2 ladies and several other members of Thrivent Financial worked with OME to help sort items donated by Salem Lutheran Church in Tomball. Thrivent Financial is a fraternal, not for profit organization, who returns profits to its members to help people in their communities.

The talented ladies in these 2 sewing groups lovingly made beautiful handmade items for our wounded warriors for this December trip.  The Creative Hands Ministry (in picture #2 below) made homemade patriotic pillow cases, and the H.E.A.R.T.S. Veterans Museum Quilters in picture #1 below made homemade quilts!  Thank you so much, ladies, for generously giving of your time and talents!

This group of awesome, energetic Home School kids helped us unload donated items into our storage unit. Thanks so much to all of you!
