Watching the CBS Sunday Morning News, I was drawn to a story about a mission called Operation Mend. The story was called “Healing The Most Deeply Scarred.” So many of our servicemen and women are coming home with the most devastating of wounds. Severe burns that leave grotesque scars and disfigurement.
This program has partnered up with a plastic surgeon at UCLA. They are providing surgeries to reconstruct the faces of these soldiers. Surgeries that may not otherwise be available to them.
On this Memorial Day, I would like to ask you to please take a moment to read about Operation Mend. This is a wonderful program that has been established to help our brave men and women regain their confidence to face the world again.
Thank you to all of those who are making sacrifices to keep our freedom.
