    Do you guys support the Wounded Warrior Project at all? I have bought a few items of UA shirts, hat, etc.
     
  2. Yes absolutely. I (and my company) am a huge supporter of the men and women that serve this country. In fact it would be interesting if Glock Forum could offer something promotional to members who contribute something to the WWP in honor of Memorial Day. I know other things are in work with the forum to honor our military, this is just an additional idea.

    I give monthly contributions. I have had several friends go through the program and one Eric Edmundson was hit by a IED (my squad caught the guy who did it) and is barely getting motor functions back but goes on hunting trips with special equipment and promotes WWP. If we did do something I would definitely want to be a part of it.

    I think its a awesome way to show our men and women who have been injured, serving our country, that we support them and stand behind them. Thank you all who proudly serve our country, and defend our freedom. Both here and abroad.
     
  7. Best wishes and thanks to Eric I hope he recovers as best he can.

    Thanks I'll tell him. He has two kids and a wife but he can't speak, walk and has minimal use of his hands and arms. Last time I saw him he was able to stand with some help. I'll post some pics of us during our reunion. WWP is an awesome organization.
     
  10. I have decided to dedicate a section of the Twisted Monkey Customs website to the WWP. Every month we will feature a soldier along with his/her bio or story for the public to see. There will be a link for people to go to the WWP and make a donation to the program.

    If you or someone you know would like to be one of the featured soldier's simply go to www.twistedmonkeycustoms.com and click on "contact". You may also get a hold of me on here via PM.

    Walk for the Wounded May 19th, 2012 (PA)

    Make plans now to support the 5th Annual Walk for The Wounded...


    Pennsylvania’s 5th Annual Walk for the Wounded will take place May 19 at Rose Tree Park in Delaware County, PA. In addition to military vehicles, helicopters and the actual two-mile Walk, plans for this year include a Rock and Roll Music Festival and a brand new Classic Car and Motorcycle Show. For more information visit www.walkforthewounded.org or call 610-565-3679.

    Operation First Response (OFR) has announced that its fifth annual Pennsylvania Walk For The Wounded will take place Saturday, May 19 at Rose Tree Park. The Walk brings together upwards of 8,000 people each year from the Mid-Atlantic States and beyond, who come to show their support for wounded veterans and their families who struggle to deal with serious health issues and financial challenges.

    This year’s event, titled “Rock, Roll and Remember” will include an expanded music festival with live bands and choirs, including a special performance by Philadelphia’s own Carmen Magro, performing his hit single, “America” backed by a several choirs.

    The event gets it’s roll from a new and exciting Classic Car Show and Motorcycle Show with more than 200 vehicles expected to line the upper field of Rose Tree Park.

    The remember portion of the event will be evidenced by the displays of Apache Helicopters and other Military vehicles plus hundreds of active-duty and retired soldiers who will be on hand to meet with people attending the event. There will also be appearances by celebrity guests and speakers from the military, major sports teams and the media – including Michael Barkann, named Pennsylvania’s Sportscaster of the Year seven of the past 14 years. Barkann has also reported for the US Open Tennis Championships, several Winter Olympics and has anchored unique sports shows including the Golf Channel’s Being John Daly. Barkann is known locally for his Eagles Post Game Live show featuring former PA Governor Ed Rendell as well as famous athletes.

    A record-setting 10,000 people are expected to attend this year’s event in support of Operation First Response (OFR), a national 501-C3 non profit organization that donates 90 percent of every dollar directly to wounded soldiers and their families who face serious health and financial battles on the home front.

    Representatives of OFR visit Bethesda Naval Hospital in Maryland every week and meet with wounded veterans and their families who are struggling to cope with their fears about the future while dealing with serious and even life-altering injuries. Many of the soldiers they meet have had their lives changed forever as they deal with severe burns, organ damage, amputations, and painful surgeries. According to OFR, those physical injuries are often followed by mounting bills at home for ongoing therapies, chronic pain management, job retraining, obtaining transportation to and from doctor’s appointments, and necessary home renovations.
