Looking for members in the Virginia Beach area to assist with Welcome Home

 

A Hero’s Welcome,

We  have received a  welcome home request from a husband of a Sailor in Virginia Beach, VA who recently returned from her 3rd deployment!  She has spent many months away from her children and her hubby wanted to do something special for his wife when she returned home.  We have not been able to properly plan a welcome home since currently have no chapter in the Virginia Beach area but…that doesn’t mean it won’t still happen!!!

If you know of anyone in the Virginia Beach area that would be interested in helping us plan a welcome home for this Sailor, please contact me.

Our Hero is already home so this will be an easy mission to plan…

For the Troops,

Maria  Hyland

A Hero’s Welcome
