Members of the L/Cpl. Robert J. Slattery Detachment 206, Marine Corps League have been making monthly visits to the wounded warriors and their families. At the Navy Medical Center Bethesda, MD and Army Medical Center Washington, DC. Now combined and know as Walter Reed National Military Medical Center at Bethesda, Maryland. (See below for dates, reports and photographs).

It all started on June 17,2005: When six members of the detachment made a visit to the wounded Marines at Bethesda. They brought items for the wounded that the Marine Liaison Officer recommended, polo shirts, crossword puzzle books, playing cards etc. This visit opened our eyes to the need for this activity. We visited Marines and their families from New Jersey, Mississippi, Kentucky, Texas, Indiana, Missouri and Nebraska.

The Marines spirits, attitude and receptiveness were excellent. Loss of leg, shattered bone in leg, blinded eye, shattered hand and bellywounds were some of the injuries we encountered. There was no communication gap between us as they talked freely, sea stories were swapped back and forth. We heard a number of times “You came all the way from NJ just to see us”.

The visits are still being made to both hospitals as the wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines continue to arrive because of the action going on in Afghanistan. Members just made a visit on (See below for dates, reports and photographs).

Over the years the Marines Care program in memory of L/Cpl. Chris CosgroveIII has expanded to providing direct financial grants, paying for electric, oil, car, insurance, repairs, and bedding, etc. for the wounded and their families of ALL BRANCHES OF THE MILITARY. Also computers, monitors, TVs, speech therapy software, GPS and other items requested by the VA & Bethesda hospitals.

None of this could be accomplished without your support and donations!

The Slattery detachment MCL is an all volunteer’s organization. “NO ONE IS PAID A SALARY” All donations are deposited in the Marines Care program checking account and there is a very minimal expense to maintain this program.

To see some of the results of Where The Donation Money Goes reports on our web site.
