Warrior’s Weekend XI will be held on Saturday 20 May, 2017. Come by the Port O’Connor Community Center beginning on (TBD) until the event on Saturday to view a spectacular sand sculpture which will be in progress around the clock until the day of the event, by artist, Gloria Fric, who is donating her time and talents. The troops will arrive Saturday morning around 9:00 AM, 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 & 9:30 AM. There will be a friendly competition with an official weigh-in and awards presented at a dinner that evening around 5:30 PM, accompanied by music and addresses by military dignitaries and from our heroes themselves. Join us in this, our eleventh annual event, to put into action the fact that you really support our troops!
Founded in 2007, Warrior’s Weekend is a non-profit, 501 (c) 3 Corporation dedicated to the support of veterans of The United States of America with an emphasis on those wounded in The Global War on Terrorism. This is accomplished through holding an annual fishing event for wounded military personnel in May in Port O’Connor, Texas as well as donations to veterans and veterans-based causes.
