19 JAN 2008 I love this place
Here is a great article from John Camp of the MinnPost who visited the hospital last week. The best of the article talks about my friend Public Affairs Officer D. who has taken countless visitors through the hospital. He's not assigned to the hospital, but he might as well be, he's always there. When he is not escorting reporters as part of his official duties, he's staffing the ED and helipad as a volunteer to help out. He gave the staff a real boost by arranging to get everyone a scrub top and backpack with the DAV and hospital logo on them. Back home he works for Disabled American Veterans. He won't have the problem that I had last time. When I got home, I felt like I went from doing a good job supporting the troops to instantly doing nothing for them.
Now if I can only figure out how to stop waking up at 0430 every morning...
