Honoring "Operation Mend" At The Rose Bowl

Last weekend UCLA honored "Operation Mend" at the Rose Bowl. We found out about this is amazing program entailing UCLA Health Systems Operation offering treatment to American heroes - our men and women in uniform who have been injured in combat - last year. The folks involved in this program were honored during that home coming game last year at the Rose Bowl.

Well the Operation Mend patients, doctors, staff, volunteers and the UCLA leadership took the field again this year during the Washington State football game on Saturday to be recognized by more than 60,000 in the stands at the Rose Bowl. Here is the video:

Here is a little description on this wonderful project:

"Operation Mend," a unique partnership between Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, and the V.A.-Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System has been established to help treat several U.S. military personnel wounded during service in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The project was launched with the help of philanthropist Ronald A. Katz, a well-known inventor and Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center board member, who recognized that providing excellent care to injured soldiers need not be limited to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Armed Services. The project aims to serve as a model for other medical institutions interested in helping additional wounded service members.
