Last Tuesday, more than 20 U.S. Senate and military spouses joined USO volunteers and Dr. Jill Biden at the Vice President’s residence to assemble care packs for wounded, ill and injured troops. The care packs contain items that troops say make a real impact on their recovery process, helping them heal with some of the comforts of home.
The packs include essential hygiene items such as shampoo, deodorant and lip balm. Often, when troops are being transferred from the battlefield to medical facilitates, they arrive with few, if any, personal items. The packs will be combined with comfortable clothing and a blanket to complete the USO’s recently introduced Warrior Care Pack.
