The Red Sox Make Warrior Wishes Come True!

April 14, 2015

After a good night sleep thanks to the Constitution Inn, my dad was back at Fenway Park this morning to honor the legacy of Army Warrior Ryan McDermott & host surviving family members at the Red sox game in his honor.


Ryan enlisted in the United States Army in 2010, where he proudly served honorably for the next 3 and half years in Charlie Company 2nd Battalion 227th Aviation Regiment, Fort Hood, TX. During this time he bravely served one tour in Afghanistan.

Ryan was an avid Patriot and Red Sox fan who enjoyed snowboarding and the outdoors. He was also an accomplished scuba diver, who was very proud to serve our country in the United States Army. Most of all Ryan loved spending time with his family and friends, where he always had this uncanny way with words and one liners that would leave you in tears from laughing.

Ryan’s passion for life and to be the best soldier he could be was what he strived for.

Operation Warrior Wishes is proud to honor the legacy of Army Warrior Ryan Mcdermott and host his family at the Red Sox game today.

We would like to thank New Era Cap for providing Red Sox Caps for the Warriors & the Boston Red Sox for providing tickets for the game and helping us make these Warrior Wishes come true!  Ryan’s family had the had the opportunity to sit front row behind home plate!  It was an incredible experience that will never be forgotten!

Today marked the 2nd year anniversary since the Boston Marathon Bombing.  It was pretty awesome to meet up with some of the survivors at the game and watch them throw out first pitch!  As you may recall, we hosted many of the survivors last year at the Patriots game.  Its incredible to see how far they have come since the attack.

My Dad will be back on the Bus tonight and make his way to DC to make Warrior Wishes come true at the Nationals game tomorrow!
