The Yellow Ribbon Fund was created in 2005 to assist our injured service members and their families while they recuperate at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the National Naval Medical Center. Our mission began when two of our volunteers learned of needs at Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval that were not being met by other donors.
In six years, contributions made through the Yellow Ribbon Fund have provided the following for injured service members and their families: over 1,400 free rental cars spanning 56,000 free rental car days; over 18,000 free taxi rides; over 9,000 free hotel room nights; and 46 families have used our four apartments for more than 7,600 nights; and hundreds of free tickets to sporting games, concerts and plays, and hundreds of lunches, dinners, golf games, duck and goose hunts, fishing trips and other activities.
