Wherever there are veterans, there Georgie will be. Here is how her friends at the Marine Corps League Detachment named for her son tell it:
In the many years since the death of her son Bruce, she has devoted thousands upon thousands of hours of volunteer work at the Miami Florida, VA Medical Center, in such services as feeding patients, writing letters for them, reading to them, and seeing to their general welfare. She has received many awards from the Veterans Administration, for her unique, very loving, and unequaled dedicated service. Additionally, she has been the local Miami chapter president, and the State President of the American Gold Star Mothers. She is now one of their past National Presidents, having served in that high office, from June 2001 to June 2002, and she remains very active on their national staff.
Georgie herself says, “God’s going to have a surprise waiting for these guys,” the men that she has visited and talked to, fed and hugged, laughed with and cried with. “In Heaven, I’m going to be in the wheelchair, and they are going to be waiting on me.” Meanwhile, she is still working hard with the Silver Spoons volunteer program to help feed hospitalized veterans, sending packages to troops in Iraq, and keeping alive the memory of her son and other veterans.
