Shout Out from the Warrior Center (click link to the left to view)
Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon has been supporting the Landstuhl ERMC for many years now. In June 2009, one of our supporters, Joe Renta, stopped by the hospital Chaplain's office during a business trip to Germany. He delivered many video games from our friends at Xbox 360 and publishers, including Wolverine, which turned out to be a very popular game! (See below for more pictures from Joe's visit).

Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon has been supporting the Landstuhl European RMC for several years now, since two of our adoptees from Iraq (Ibn Sina Hospital) landed there. All the seriously wounded troops from Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom are sent there.
In June 2009, supporter Joe R. took a personal detour from a business trip to Germany to visit the wounded soldiers at the hospital and drop off a bunch of Xbox 360 video games at the Chaplain's office. The joy the soldiers showed while playing the games was obvious.
"The pictures in no way accurately portray the joy these Wounded Warriors expressed as we gave them the Microsoft games," said Joe. "The game room went from silence to mayhem in a matter of minutes. Even with multiple copies of the same games we had lines waiting their turn."
In 2008, Joe visited Landstuhl for the first time and was able to meet our adoptees and see the great work they do. Joe and his associate Kevin A. were able to also drop off some video games for the staff and patients. Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon has sent XBoxes and games, flight pillows from the NJ Credit Union League and a variety of food snacks and personal care products for the medical staff and patients at Landstuhl for several years.

We are honored to support the incredibly professional and wonderful medical staff at Landstuhl. We are in awe of all they do to take care of our military wounded.
