After a second straight successful mission in San Francisco, it was time to head south to make Warrior Wishes come true in Los Angeles!
As usual, My dad did not remember much of the overnight bus ride, as he passed out as soon as his butt hit the seat. He woke up refreshed as his bus arrived at Union Station in LA at the crack of dawn.
He grabbed breakfast from a local hotel and then hopped on the Dodger Stadium Express Bus to go down the street to Chavez Ravine, the site of Dodger Stadium
Today we were honored to be hosting SGT Jessie Cervantes & Marine Moises Guzman as well as their families at the Dodgers game.
My dad met up with Sgt Cervantes and his wife Julie first , as they were there right at 11:30. The Guzmans called and said they were running late so My dad sent SGT Cervantes & his wife go inside the stadium while he waited for the Guzman’s outside.
While he waited, my dad put together little gift bags for The kids and a toy company that has set up for kids day, donated a bubble machine. Unfortunately when My dad went to meet them, and gave mom and dad their New Era caps, he turned back around and someone had stolen all their toys and even the bubble machine! My dad felt really bad because he didn’t have anything for the kids. He told all the kids That he would send them all some stuff.
Despite this little snafu, everyone had a great time. Jessie and his wife were huge Dodger fans. Moises was nominated to us by his wife & This was his & his family’s first ever game! They all had a great time watching the Dodgers beat the Padres from the 2nd row!
Operation Warrior Wishes would like to thank New Era Cap for the Caps. Most importantly, we would like to thank Marine Moises Guzman And Army Sgt Jessie Cervantes for their selfless service to our country.
TOGETHER WE MAKE WARRIOR WISHES COME TRUE!
My dad will be on a morning bus to San Diego to hopefully make Warrior Wishes come true at the MLB Home Run Derby! Stay tuned for more details!
