Personal products needed for wounded servicemembers at Walter Reed 
Stars and Stripes
Mideast edition, Friday, December 1, 2006 
Officials at Walter Reed Army Medical Center are seeking donations for
wounded troops who are forced to leave behind personal belongings when
medically evacuated from war zones.
Many of the troops "arrive with nothing," said officials from the hospital's
Family Assistance Center. Because of the speed with which the most serious
wounded are evacuated from Iraq or Afghanistan, their belongings are often
left behind and don't catch up.
So the center is looking for everything from shoes, gloves and winter
jackets to postage stamps, prepaid phone cards and razors.
The Family Assistance Center requests that no cash or used items be donated.
Among
some of the more specialized needs are weightlifting gloves (for use by
wheelchair patients); trousers with snaps or zips along the legs; umbrellas;
and prepaid gas or grocery cards.
The center also helps patients file claims for personal belongings that were
left behind during a medical evacuation. Loss or damage to items can be
reimbursed through the system.
Donations can be sent to:
Walter Reed Army Medical Center
Medical Family Assistance Center
Bldg. 2, 3rd Floor, Room 3E01
6900 Georgia Ave, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 2001
