The USA Warriors mission is to organize and administer an ice hockey program that provides a recreational, therapeutic experience and education for those wounded in defense of the United States.Their program educates, trains, motivates, and encourages the formation of “USA Warrior Hockey Programs” locally and nationally while encouraging individuals who have physical disabilities incurred during service to the United States to participate in the sport of ice hockey in an environment that is adapted to the level of their ability.
The USA Warriors Hockey team is split up into two teams, a stand up team & a sled team. They are here in Chicago from Washington DC on their annual trip to play Chicago Blackhawks alumni on Mar 27-28.
This is the 2nd straight year that WarriorWishes has provided lunch for the warriors, and anyone that follows our mission knows it is not just about buying lunch. This is another opportunity to show these warriors our appreciation for their service and sacrifices and hang out with some heroes and friends we have made over the past 2 years .
Some of the USA WARRIORS have already been recipients of one of our VIP WarriorWishes experiences, while all others have open invitations waiting for them to be honored as our guest at a future event.
We hope all of the guys have a great weekend of hockey and enjoy their lunch – Operation Warrior Wishes would like to send out a big Thank You to Rob and McKenna at Chick Fil A on State St for helping out this year!
