Welcome to Landstuhl Hospital Care Project
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 of 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)

Who would think that sitting in a living room on Ramstein AFB and learning that the troops receiving care at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany would one day get me a visit with President George W. Bush?
I have often visited the White House and taken many pictures from behind the iron fences. I have often wondered what it would be like inside and NEVER thought that I, Karen Grimord, a nobody when it comes to somebody in the world, would one day stand inside those barred fences of the White House.
As I was more…
