Stevie talks about Walter Reed experience, writing 'Soldier's Angel'

In December, Stevie talked to Ultimate Classic Rock about the service members that she has visited at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Bethesda Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland.

Stevie made a series of visits to the hospitals starting in 2005, where she spent hours with men and women who were injured in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. As part of their rehabilitation, Stevie listened to their stories, took photographs with them, and gave them iPods filled with music. One particular experience at Walter Reed inspired her to write the song “Soldier’s Angel” (from In Your Dreams, 2011) and founded the Stevie Nicks Soldier’s Angel Foundation (a charity that helps injured U.S. military personnel) in 2006.

Stevie has been a long-time supporter of U.S. service members. In 1991, she wrote the song “Desert Angel” (from Timespace, 1991) for the U.S. men and women who served in Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm.
