A “pop in” visit by Marine Moms Jane and Janelle at Bethesda National Naval Medical Center in October 2005, visiting friends who were there with their combat wounded sons, and then shortly after, to visit their own sons’ friends who were wounded in action became “Marine Moms-Bethesda” in 2007.

You can read about their first visit here: Bethesda Naval Hospital: Our First Visit.

Monthly luncheons, notes of encouragement and support, pantry bags and “niftie-gifties” are provided with the help and support of like-minded individuals, businesses, and organizations across the country.

Our volunteers’ family members are active duty military, IRR, waiting for their medical discharge, have completed their contracts, or “gave their all”, with dozens of tours to Iraq and Afghanistan between them.
