After honoring the legacy of Army Sgt Dwight Burn last night at the Dodgers game in LA, my dad made his way to bus stop and took a $1 overnight bus ride from LA to Oakland. After hosting heroes at 46 games in 45 days on our Battlefields to Ballfields mission, my dad was pretty exhausted and slept the entire ride.
ARMY SGT DANIEL VALENTYNE
SGT Valentyne served in the United states Army from April 2006 to June 2014. He deployed with third infantry division out of fort benning GA in March 2007 in support of the surge into Iraq. He was in Baghdad, Iraq for 15 months, & was assigned to a military transition team, where he trained the Iraq army and would also provide quick reforce force for all other units in southern Baghdad.
Operation Warrior wishes was honored to host Sgt Valentyne and his family at the A’s game today.
We would like to thank the Oakland Athletics for providing tickets and helping make this experience special by putting a special message thanking SGT valentyne for his service on the scoreboard. We would also like to thank New Era for providing A’s caps.
My dad will be taking a day off tomorrow, only because there is no professional sporting events going on in the bay area. He will be back in action on Tuesday honoring warriors at the San Francisco Giants game.
