    ...and the rooms were empty. It's good to see that casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan are slowing down so much that the 5 east ward at Bethesda was cleared out empty. Ever since I was wounded and did my one and a half month stay at Bethesda I've been making a visit to the 5 East ward of the hospital every month. It meant so much to me when other Marines/veterans/civilians who did not know me visited me to see how I was doing and thank me. I felt real good then and I hope to pass that joy, pride, and self respect to others by doing the same thing for those that are fortunate enough to survive their wounds.

    Awesome job. And good to know that business at the hospital isn't booming any more.
