Warrior’s Weekend Needs Your Help
Warrior’s Weekend VIII is approaching fast! Warrior’s Weekend VIII will be held on Saturday 17, May 2014. The troops will arrive Saturday morning around 9:00AM, by chartered buses from Brooke Army Medical Center, joining other wounded soldiers who arrived earlier from other military installations across the country. After a grand welcome rally, they will immediately board their boats and begin fishing between 9 & 9:30AM. There will be a friendly competition with an official weigh-in and awards presented at a dinner that evening around 5:30PM, accompanied by music and addresses by military dignitaries and from our heroes themselves. Join us in this, our fourth annual event, to put into action the fact that you really support our troops!
But there’s only one small problem they are in need of boats.Any boat size can be accommodated. They are still in need of 75 to 100 more boats, with at least a two person crew, willing to host a solider for a day of fishing in the waters off of Port O’Connor. No need to be a guide or even know the area well, our Heroes just want to fish. You do need to have fishing poles (preferably spinning reels). Drinks and bait will be provided. No alcohol is permitted. This is per the orders of the military bases. Our whole event would not be possible if we cannot bring the Heroes In.

A big thank you to everyone who puts this event on and to all the boat captains who volunteer their time.
