Worry Wreath at Longview Regional Hospital

The war seems to touch so many people with family in the armed forces and those in the medical field are no exception. Healthcare workers at Longview Regional Hospital share stories of their loved ones in the armed forces... and stories from the past-- trying to help themselves and each other, through a difficult time.

They came up with a unique way to help each other cope with worrying about their family members.  It's an armed forces wreath, that some call the "worry wall". They share stories of what their loved ones would be saying to them now. And mostly they help comfort each other form being so far apart. And through this bond they keep their loved ones close until they do come home. The armed forces wreath will stay posted in the hospital until all the troops come home.
