The Trinity Foundation, the non-profit arm of Trinity Logistics, was honored to host and attend a picnic barbeque on August 21st for wounded warriors and their families at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Director of Customer Relations, Dan Dobson, USAF Veteran, was one of the many volunteers and orchestrators of the event. “We were humbled by these men and women who represent the finest our country has to offer. They have set the gold standard for perseverance in the face of what many would see as insurmountable odds. It was inspiring to meet them and serve them as the August sponsor.” Each month, Marines Helping Marines and Truckin for Troops organizes this event for the wounded warriors, and Trinity was invited to participate, which we accepted wholeheartedly and humbly!

In addition to the great food and conversation, a Trinity team member's husband created a custom made corn hole game to add even more fun to the day! The blue and red board was adorned with personal messages from our team members thanking the wounded warriors for their service to our country and their sacrifice. It will remain at the Walter Reed Hospital for all patients to enjoy. Trinity Foundation Director, Gina Banning, reflected on the day with these words. “What a humbling and awesome event! I think I can speak for everyone when I say we were all were so touched and inspired by the sacrifices that are made on our behalf. It’s easy to dismiss and lose sight of what is really happening to our soldiers when it’s on TV. When you see it with your own eyes it really makes you realize just what these husbands, wives, sons, daughters, and family members have had to, and still, are enduring. We all want to do more and go back. What an inspiring group of men and women!”
Susan Warren, event supporter and co-coordinator shared, “What a fantastic and blessed day it was for our wounded warriors with Trinity Logistics and their beautiful group who sponsored and volunteered to make today very special for the wounded and their families. Can't thank them all enough. It was truly a blessing to meet all of you, and I look forward to the next time you can return next year.”
