As you guys all know I do BBQ and just got a couple new big Pit Smokers. You also know I am a Non Active Duty Marine with 2 sons serving in the Army and you know I am an Amputee. Put all that together and it says feed the wounded soldiers and where better than right here in the Nation's Capital at Walter Reed Army Medical Center where the wounded come first.

There is a group called Operation BBQ for Our Troops who have done events where they get BBQ guys and their cookers with donated meats to cook for the wounded folks and their families. They do many out in Texas and the west but not so much here on the East Coast and that's a shame because the injured warriors come here to Walter Reed first.

Operation BBQ For Our Troops

I don't exactly know how to organize this but I will GET THIS DONE. Does anyone here have cntacts at Walter Reed or HIGH up in the Army?

I'll try and use my contacts to get in touch with someone in charge at Walter Reed and get a date and number of family folks to feed. Then we'll organize our pits and I/WE will get us the donations needed too.

Who wants to help?
You can help with yer pit, time and donations.

We owe these kids.
Who's with me?
peace

I have a Lite Colonel that lives across the street from me, her and her husband are both stationed at Walter Reed. What do you need?
