On February 2nd, 2013, several of our SDSU SVO students volunteered for a local Wounded Warrior luncheon and wheelchair basketball tournament. Volunteers arrived early Saturday morning at NMCSD to cheer on wounded warriors from around the country.
The tournament included two active duty battalions: The Ft. Sam “Warriors” traveled all the way from San Antonio Texas to challenge our local Naval Medical Center San Diego Injured Marine “Wolfpack”. The athleticism of these warriors is astounding, and it was a privilege to spend the day helping the wounded warriors as well as cheering them on to victory. I look forward to many more opportunities to volunteer with this great group of heroes.
