My Dad took a day off on Tuesday to come home and surprise us thanks to our freinds in Houston. He spent less than 12 hours back in Chicago before getting back on the bus to Make Warrior Wishes come true in St. Louis for the 36th game of our Battlefields to Ballfields mission.
It was nice to have my dad home for a few hours & hard to let him go, but he is a man on a mission to show his appreciation & provide a fun filled day to the soldiers who defend our country.
Today the St Louis Cardinals are helping us honor Army SFC Randy Hargis, Air Force Warrior Howard Gossmeyer, Army SSG Andy Cochran, Army SGT Patrick Wadleigh, Marine SGT Jonathan Dowell & the legacy of Army SGT Steven Torlina.
We would like to thank the St Louis Cardinals for providing Tickets and a scoreboard message to thank these heroes for their service. We would also like to thank Cardinals Nation Bar & Grill for providing a pregame meal, New Era for providing Cardinals Caps for everyone, & PBR Cowboy Bar for providing a round of drinks for everyone.
My Dad will be spending the night at the bus station waiting to board his 3 am ride to Kansas city to make Warrior Wishes come true at the Royals games over the next few days.
