"Visiting Walter Reed made what our soldiers - our brothers, sons, daughters, husbands, fathers and friends - are going through more real to me. It made me more thankful that we have men and women dedicated to this country. The soldiers and their families shared stories that were heart wrenching and strengthening. The experience made me happy to be part of this project and this company." - Nicole Williams, HR Coordinator.
