I love this…..another chance to meet and help wounded warriors and their spouses (oh, yeah, and also have lots of fun with them!)

Griff Jenkins, my husband and I are going for this long weekend to Alaska to fish with wounded warriors.  Last year we went and I teased the guys — the wounded warriors — because frankly, I caught a lot of fish! Ha!  In February we also had a reunion in North Carolina of last summer’s group and we had so much fun….so I am looking forward to meeting new wounded warriors and their spouses.  

Reverend Franklin Graham and Samaritan’s Purse do the MOST amazing things for these couples.  It is tough to come back from war…and even tougher if you or your spouse has huge physical disabilities from war.   All the Samaritan’s Purse boats are adapted so that it can handle wheel chairs etc.   Samaritan’s Purse has thought of everything to take of these wounded warriors.  

PS – Griff is bring video camera and I am bringing still camera so that we can show you the trip and you can meet the wounded warriors and spouses !
