HAPPY SPRING ANGELS !
Welcome to all of our new angels! Spring has sprung along with many
support activities in Washington state. Our Deployed, wounded, Veterans
and families continue to need and appreciate the lift your support
This is a new email format I'm learning so if something doesn't show up
correctly or if you have a suggestion (not to mention a story or idea
to include for next time) let me know! Volunteer opportunities will be
listed on the right margin of these newsletters. If you see an event
that peaks your interest email email@example.com for more
details. More volunteers are definitely needed and appreciated! If you
don't see an event in your area ..create one! Email with your ideas and
let's see how we can get them off the ground! If you have the time and
an interest in coordinating angels and support activities in your area,
we are currently looking for Community Liasons and VA Reps for the VAs.
Wouldn't it be wonderful to have Angel inspiration in every community
and Angel support for our deployed, Wounded, Veterans and their families
in every town in Washington? It really takes a couple of people to
start the ball rolling! As service area manager for Washington, I'll do
my best to support your efforts.
LOOK WHAT OUR WASHINGTON ANGELS HAVE BEEN UP TO!

A Happy Customer!
Our latest recipients of Golden Wing Awards!!Congratulations Jill &
Colleen. These two ladies are part of a wonderful team of Angels that
cook monthly dinners for our Wounded Warriors at JBLM. Jill, Colleen,
Erin, Tracy, Lizzy and Debbie have been providing these dinners for the

Congratulations Louisa-or Lu the Card Lady as we know her! Lu lives in
Washouga and has been making cards for the deployed and has now teamed
up with Angel Jean from Vancouver to make meal tray cards for American
Below is Lu pictured at a recent card making workshop with fellow
Angels. It would be amazing to have more of these Angel workshiops
around the state. Perhaps you know someone in your area that is crafty
and who you could team up with for this kind of activity at a senior's
center, youth or church group? The cards will be distributed to
deployed, VA's, and Medical centers for our wounded.
Angel Dawn & friends stuffed over 174 eggs with goodies for our
American lake Veterans and enjoyed a wonderful Easter Visit with the
Veterans. Also included were hand made cards from children. Thank you
Author Melissa McClone joined forces with Soldiers' Angels for our
Fisher House Moms, and provided these fabulous 'ThirtyOne' totes filled
with books from fellow authors and friends, and other goodies to enjoy!
They are going to love them! Thank you Melissa!! More pictures to be
added after our Mother's Day Event. When days are filled with long
hours at the hospital, appointments, and worries, being a little
pampered is a wonderful morale boost. Thanks to all of the angels making
Perhaps you have a story to share or a picture to post? We'd love to hear from you!
Did anyone watch the Kentucky Derby on the Weekend? Did you hear the story about Race Horse Uncle Sigh? " Just
months after meeting a wounded warrior while traveling, Chip McEwen
received the Jockey Club's approval to change the name of his stables to
Wounded Warrior Stables and switch to yellow silks emblazoned with a
purple heart — symbolic of the medal given to those wounded or killed
during combat." Click on the Picture to connect with the video and story.
