Honoring American Heroes
[dropcap]A[/dropcap]pproximately 48,000 service members have been injured in the recent military conflicts, primarily Iraq and Afghanistan. These Warriors have sustained life changing injuries while defending our nation, and now we have an opportunity to show our appreciation for their sacrifices. The citizens of Port St. Joe and the surrounding community will host the Forgotten Coast Wounded Warrior Weekend, May 14 through May 18, 2014. Twenty (20) Wounded Warriors and their caretakers will be participating in this five day event. The generosity shown by our community in the past has made this event one of the most popular among our Wounded Warriors.
All of these Warriors will be first time participants with the exception of three mentor Warriors who have participated in our previous Forgotten Coast Wounded Warrior Weekend. Events during this 5 day period will include a Heroes’ Parade, a Grand Banquet at the Centennial Building in Port St. Joe (with 350-400 attendees), an Offshore Fishing Tournament, Local Tours, and a Program on Bald Eagles. These events are intended to give our Warriors an opportunity to bond with each other and to receive a heartfelt THANK YOU from our community for their sacrifices.
We need your help! Your generous contributions in the past have made this event an outstanding success. Our Forgotten Coast Wounded Warrior Organization is a “not for profit” corporation and 100% of all monetary donations will be used for this event which requires considerable dollars to cover such expenses as lodging and airfare for those unable to drive to Port St. Joe.
Please show your support! This is an opportunity for all of us to step up and show our appreciation to our Heroes who served so honorably.
