What Volunteering at Walter Reed Looks Like
Currently, Lina takes a shuttle from Arlington, Virginia, to Walter Reed four days a week to volunteer. As it has for years, her day begins by volunteering in the pharmacy and then continues into the Military Advanced Training Center (MATC) where she visits and offers encouragement to wounded, ill and injured and their families. Lina sits with the service members and their families and listens to see if the Red Cross can make their recovery a bit more comfortable.
Lina offers the love of a mother, a grandmother or just a shoulder to lean on. She is an extraordinary example of how one person can make an impact on others.
