Our ultimate goal is to create an atmosphere is helping, and that can’t just stop with our program members.

“America’s veterans have served their country with the belief that democracy and freedom are ideals to be upheld around the world,” said John Doolittle. For the Seminole Florida based “find a doctor” specialty telemedicine service MD247, this quote rings true and the company has decided to give back to those in military service by participating in the Soldiers’ Angels First Response Backpack program. The First Response Backpack is provided when military personnel are injured or wounded while in service and is the first reminder that wounded or ill soldiers receive that Americans back home are thinking of them. “Our ultimate goal is to create an atmosphere is helping, and that can’t just stop with our program members,” said Thomas Meehan the Founder of MD247.
The First Response Backpack was designed for situations when military personnel are injured or wounded while serving in locations like Afghanistan, and their treatment and transportation occur with such speed that their personal items never catch up with them. They are often evacuated wearing the same clothing they wore when they were wounded; clothing that is damaged in action, and soon they find themselves without access to even a comfortable change of clothes.
To address this situation, Soldiers' Angels created the “First Response Backpack.” The backpack provides a complete set of comfortable clothing, a full set of travel-sized toiletries and accessories, an international calling card for reaching home and a handmade blanket. The backpack also includes a zippered, hooded sweatshirt with the Soldiers' Angels logo. Since the “First Response Backpack” project started, Soldiers' Angels has distributed more than 25,000 backpacks for the wounded.
“First Response Backpacks” are one of the first indications wounded or ill soldiers receive that Americans back home are thinking of them. They are distributed in-country to Combat Support Hospitals and other major facilities that treat or transport the wounded, as well as smaller facilities where a mildly ill/injured soldier might stay for a short while before returning to his or her unit.
