Default Flight Simulators for Wounded Warriors

I hope you don't mind me sticking out my hand requesting donations of Flight Simulators for the Wounded Warriors staying at Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda... Yes, Bethesda Naval is renamed Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

I have a group of budding dedicated helicopter pilots. We meet every Thursday in the America building with the consent of the American Red Cross. If you have a simulator you are not using and would like to donate it, please contact me.

I will provide an address to ship directly to the Red Cross office on post.

This is very good therapy for amputees and traumatic brain injury patients. It occupies many hours of their time at a point in their lives when they need positive things to think about.

Send me a PM through the RCU system and I will get back to you.

I have been building and flying planes and helicopters with these vets for a couple of years. I am looking for someone in the area to assist with the program. You will need to be able to get cleared to work on post. Background check and clearance.

Thanks for this very, very much!

I am a disabled Vietnam Combat veteran.

I would try to get some business sponsors, Call The D.A.V. (disabled veterans) Try the Veterans Administration and Veterans of foreign wars (VFW) there are many chapters in most cities, they could give you more directions of who may contact.

Good Luck, and again Thx.

Thanks... it is a small effort and certainly not everyone's cup of tea... but for the few, it is great.

Thanks all for the good wishes.
