"Thank you" from a Marine's little sister

I've blogged before
about the lunches that Soldiers' Angels hosts at the hospital at our National Naval Medical Center on a weekend day every month or so.

I was there again this past Sunday and was pleased to provide a sandwich, soda, and cookie to a couple dozen patients and family members and a bunch of medical staff.

We always get lots of thank yous, but this is the first time we've gotten a hand-crafted one. Little Eileen brought this by when I was cleaning up. Since there are lots of folks out there whose donations make these lunches possible, I thought you'd like to see our thank you gift from a Marine's little sister.

Her big brother was on a restricted diet, but his mom and I came up with a grape jelly sandwich, some grapes, and some pretzels.

Not bad, Team. Thanks.
