Why do and Why should we do this? The answer is written on the faces of the Wounded Heroes each year. We roll out our best Texas hospitality to each of these brave men and women because it is what we must do. They need time away from hospitals and therapy and constant reminders of what they lost. Most of them never received a “welcome home” as they went from the battlefield to the hospital to home, so we give it to them. Warrior’s Weekend gives them the opportunity to bond with each other and talk about the difficult battles they face every day. But most of all, it lets them know that we have not forgotten them!
Let’s get together and show the over 270 Wounded Warriors and their medical staff our Texas Sized Hospitality!
