Joining the US Foreign Service in 1985, Mr. Ballard’s 30-year career included field posts in Angola, Egypt, Morocco, Mozambique, Portugal, Rwanda and Tunisia as well as positions such as Director of the US Department of State’s Office of Foreign Press and US Army Foreign Policy Advisor. In January 2016, a few months after formally retiring from the Foreign Service, he became a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Reviewer for the State Department. He is responsible for reviewing documents for release under FOIA in response to litigation and/or court orders. His selection for this position reflects his expertise and extensive experience in US foreign policy, diplomatic history and protocol as well as his knowledge of the classification system and of laws and practice related to release of information. Mr. Ballard holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Foreign Service and an African Studies Certificate from Georgetown University and a Certificat d’Études Africaines from the National University of the Ivory Coast.

An attorney who earned his JD at The Catholic University of America, Mr. Young is the Director of Project New Opportunity, providing assistance and counsel to people released from federal prisons in advance of the duration of their original sentences due to: (1) judicially-approved sentence modifications authorized when the US Sentencing Commission revised federal sentencing guideline for those convicted of drug trafficking offenses; (2) commutations issued by President Obama; and (3) the 2015 US Supreme Court case Johnson v.

Since 1986, COTA has helped thousands of transplant-needy children and young adults, and has raised more than $100 million for transplant-related expenses. At Indiana-based COTA, Mr. Lofgren administers strategic operations and policy formulation for the $30 million health care-related and fundraising charity.

A journalist and writer, Ms. Esfahani Smith is the author of The Power of Meaning: Crafting a Life That Matters, in which she identifies “four pillars of meaning”—belonging, purpose, storytelling, and transcendence. She was inspired to write this book at least in part by her parents who ran a Sufi meeting house out of their Montreal home when she was a child. Growing up surrounded by people who believed in Sufism—the mystical interpretation of Islam, practiced loving kindness and service to all, and whose lives were so rich with meaning left an impression on her. Ms. Esfahani Smith draws on psychology, philosophy, literature, and her own reporting to consider the human experience. Her articles “There’s More to Life than Being Happy” and “Masters of Love,” originally published in The Atlantic, have been read over 30 million times. She is a columnist for The New Criterion and an editor at the Stanford University’s Hoover Institution where she manages the Ben Franklin Circles Project. A collaboration between the 92nd Street Y and Citizen University, the Circles bring people together to enjoy deep, meaningful conversations about what it means to live well. Ms. Esfahani Smith is an instructor in positive psychology at the University of Pennsylvania where she earned her Master’s degree. She lives in Washington, DC with her husband.

NEW LOCATION ON WALTER REED CAMPUS: Please note that Bingo Night has now been moved into the newly completed USO Warrior and Family Center, 4565 Taylor Road.  Multipurpose Room A and B. Please park ONLY in the America Garage. 

Join Rotary and Rotaract club members in providing an evening of bingo entertainment for recovering soldiers and their visiting family members at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (formerly known as Bethesda Naval Hospital) on the third Thursday of every month.

Dinner and set-up begin at 5:00 p.m. with the start of bingo play at 6:00 p.m.
 

As those attending must be on the security clearance at the hospital's entrance, please register online and/or contact Shelton Williams no later than 3 p.m. on the Monday prior to the month's event. You will need to have a driver's license or other photo ID to show the security guard and the name registered must match your name as shown on the ID. If you have not previously done so, please include your driver's license number in the comments field when you register online.

Arriving By Metro: The easiest way to come to the hospital is by Metro, as the main entrance is located directly across from the Medical Center station on the Red Line. Cross Wisconsin Ave., turn left and walk north to the North Gate.

Arriving By Car: The hospital's address is 8901 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20889. From DC, proceed north on Wisconsin Avenue just beyond downtown Bethesda and past the intersection with Jones Bridge Road. Walter Reed National Military Medical Center will be on your right (most noticeable is the tall central building). Enter by the second or North Entrance. Please keep in mind that traffic on Wisconsin Avenue in front of the hospital can be heavy during the evening rush hour so you may want to allow extra time to reach the entrance. Please park ONLY in the America Garage, as parking in other lots may may make you subject to ticketing or towing. 

At the Gate: Present your photo ID to the guard in the Security Booth and then proceed to the USO Warrior & Family Center, 4565 Taylor Road, Multipurpose Rooms A& B (see base map here). If driving, you must park in the American Parking Garage. Cars parked in other areas may be towed.
