It's not every day you stop off to pick up some meds and encounter a member of the British royal family, but that's what happened last Friday when I visited Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda last Friday. Prince Harry was just leaving after visiting America's wounded warriors, many of whom are treated at Walter Reed. (Photo below the cut.)
I tried really hard to figure out a worldview point to justify posting this picture (and wasting Gina's time), but I couldn't think of one. So I will just ask readers to remember our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines serving around the world, and pray for them often. I see wounded warriors regularly when I visit Walter Reed for treatment (my own husband is retired military). Last week, on a day I had to undergo a chest X-ray, I saw a double-amputee wheeling himself down a hall, wearing prosthetic legs. The message on his T-shirt read, “Wounded Warrior (some assembly required).” Which made me want to laugh. Please also pray for those who are no longer in combat, but who face a lifetime of dealing with severe injuries. They are so young, and so brave.
