The Landstuhl Hospital Care Project (LHCP) is a non-profit organization that provides comfort and relief items for military members who become sick, injured, or wounded from service in the Middle East. Donated items are distributed to patients at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC) in Germany, the largest American military hospital outside the U.S.; to field hospitals in Afghanistan and Iraq; and to Veteran Administration (VA) facilities throughout the United States. Donations to LRMC are done through the Chaplains Closet. This allows all in-patients, out-patients, LRMC liaisons, LRMC nurses, and medical escorts access to supplies. The purpose of the program is to enhance the morale and welfare for troops and veterans by contributing quality of life items. Each shipment that LHCP sends is sent in honor of a military member who has made the ultimate sacrifice and lost his or her life in service to our country. Hospital staff report that when patients learn that they and their fallen service members are remembered “back home,” spirits are lifted. As one nurse wrote in an e-mail, “It’s a reminder that what we do is not in vain. It means a lot to the guys that are back there recovering — it helps them know they are not alone.”Washington Post Article (16 Sept 2007)
