Honoring The Legacy Of Army Sgt Nicholas Casey At Indians Opening Day!

April 10, 2015

My Dad spent his 3rd night in a row on a bus traveling from Cincinnati to Cleveland to honor the legacy of Army Sgt Nicholas Casey & host surviving family members at Indians Opening Day.

Operation Warrior Wishes would like to thank the Hard Rock Cafe in Cleveland for providing lunch before the game & New Era for Providing Caps for the Casey Family!

Immediately after the Indians game, the Casey family headed across the street to the Quicken Loans arena to meet up with my dad & other warriors and had the opportunity to enjoy the Cavs game in a suite!

Army Sgt Nicholas Casey

By 10th grade, Nicholas A. Casey was starting to listen to service recruiters. Because of a lack of jobs in the area, Casey started to see the military as a way of life.

“That’s what he wanted to do,” said his father, Samuel. “He didn’t never give up on nothing that he started.”

Army Sgt Nicholas Casey served in the U.S. Army with the 3rd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group Airborne.  Nick served 1 tour in Iraq and 1 tour in Afghanistan.

On Oct. 27, 2008, while serving in Afghanistan, Sgt Casey made the ultimate sacrifice when a suicide bomber took his life at the young age of 22.

Nick was a hero to our country & his 2 young boys.  We are proud to be honoring Sgt Casey’s legacy today at Indians opening day and hosting his family in his honor!
