In honor of all our military couples we wanted to give back just like you have given so generously to serve this great country. We have joined forces with the Wound Warrior Amputee Softball team.
We know it takes courage and a strong belief in what your fiancé is doing to stay behind when your loved one is far away, especially when it comes to planning your wedding without your sweetheart. We know staying positive can be challenge when you really want their signature stamp to be a part of your wedding just as much as you want yours to be a part on your special day.
This is a time you stand up and a stand perhaps a bit taller to ensure your fiancé won’t worry while you’re preparing for that blessed day knowing all is being taken care of because they put their trust in you. Adversity is a part of life and planning a wedding certainly has its stressful moments but we know on that blessed day the two of you are joined walking hand and hand sharing in the joy is going to be so worth it!
The wounded Warrior Amputee Softball team is a perfect choice for us to support in honor of you. This group of great men has had to overcome much adversity to stand taller to achieve the level of success they have with winning. This organization’s mission “is to raise awareness, educate and inspire the public about the resiliency of wounded warriors, by showing how a positive attitude, commitment, dedication and perseverance allow them to overcome any obstacles. The team is comprised of veterans and active-duty servicemen who have served our country in the global War on Terrorism, in Iraq and in Afghanistan. They now travel the country playing abled- bodied teams in competitive, celebrity and exhibition softball games, bringing their special brand of softball, courage and inspiration.”
The wounded Warrior Amputee softball team is comprised of athletic young, competitive, veterans and active duty soldiers who have lost limbs post-9/11, while serving their country in the military/war. The team includes individuals with a variety of amputations from the arm, above the knee, below the knee, bilateral below knee and the foot. Some are still in the service, other are attending college thanks to the post-9/11 GI Bill; while others have moved on to new careers.
We want to send out a big salute to the team who just got back from Scottsdale, AZ where they played this past weekend. The wounded Warrior Amputee Team represented the USA (they were team USA) and won the gold medal by defeating Japan 5-0 in the final game.
