On Saturday Nov. 4, members of the Daughters of the American Revolution Freedom Hill Chapter in McLean, Virginia partnered with Friends of the Soldiers Home to pick up 13 trash bags worth of litter from the otherwise pristine grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home-Washington. This was the second year in a row FOSH partnered with another community organization to keep the historic home for veterans free of rubbish that collects along the fence line on the far southwest portion of the campus. This portion of the campus abuts a busy road and intersection with no buffer. Unfortunately, some drivers carelessly toss bottles and other trash over the fence. Friends of the Soldiers Home through these annual cleanups has been able to help stay on top of the litter problem in this area of the campus. We thank Daughters of the American Revolution Freedom Hill Chapter for supplying volunteers for this event!
