Stevie reflects on ‘proudest moments’ visiting hospitals

Stevie shared a special message with her friends and fans on social media, paying tribute to veterans on Memorial Day. She reflected on her special visits to Walter Reed Hospital and Bethesda Hospital (now Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland), calling them “the proudest moments of [her] life.” Accompanying her message was a video of her and Mick Fleetwood laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Stevie’s message:

To All my Friends and Fans~

I would like to share this video with you because it makes me remember that the 4 years I spent visiting Walter Reed Hospital and Bethesda Hospital were the proudest moments of my life. I never spent less than 11 hours when I was at Walter Reed and never less than 7 hours at Bethesda. I went 19 times. This was enough time for me to feel like I was a soldier in the Army and Navy. Laying the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was the most emotionally difficult and the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced. I also toured Arlington Cemetery ~ walked through it~ and saw many funeral processions ride by me with the horses in the lead~ I’ll never forget it.

This is not the time for me to talk about the pandemic or the President’s lack of empathy. It is my time to celebrate being a soldier; to celebrate all soldiers and what they give up the day they enlist. I hope you spend your Memorial Day being safe and~ as the golden rule says~ “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

From the bottom of my heart, I pray for this country~ and that we will survive this, and that life will return to at least some kind of normalcy~ but for today, just be a soldier’s angel. It is their day.

Love,
Stevie Nicks

P.S.
I am printing the words to Soldier’s Angel~ the poem song I wrote while visiting the hospital.

P.S.S.
Also, thank you Mick for holding me up at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
