Silent Service a Bit Too Silent for a Bit Too Long as Army beats Navy.

We celebrated hosting our 400th veteran for an Academy game by hosting 55 Veterans 7 of them Combat Vets and 1 of them a WWII veteran for the annual Army Navy Rivalry Football game. Our Host City of Boston showed our vets and families and amazing time as Army beat Navy for the second straight year by less then 1 foot.

Special thanks to our Awesome photographer former Army Sgt. James Harvey. Our Academy Events team,  Commanding General of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command General Gary Brito and all of our Veterans that made Foxboro Mass rock.

Three Heroes Honored at Jets game.

Two of our guests were NYPD retired police officer Jerry Shanley and FDNY Artie Riccio, who lost his entire firehouse on 9/11 no words are enough to express our sympathy.
The Good News is we were able to get Jerry and Artie, along with our other guest Marine Sgt Mark Mitchell and his 9 year old son Zinny, to hold the flag in honor of all those who were lost on 9/11.
Rain and traffic put a little damper on the night but Mark and his son were able to attend Sea Life in American Dream Mall, eat dinner at Mozzarella Bar and even tailgate a little bit before the game.
THANKS to Lori at Sea Life, Michelle at the Mozzarella Bar and Joe at the tailgate for adding to the experience, and  to @WindowWorld for sponsoring the night.
Most importantly Thank you to the Heroes of the night to Jerry, Artie and Mark for their service and sacrifice to our country !!!

Warrior Wishes and Window World Honor Real Heroes at Patriots Game

In what will probably be a series of “returns”, QB Tom Brady was honored by the NE Patriots at Halftime; But Warrior Wishes and Window World honored their own heroes. Army Veteran Steve Schumer and Navy Veteran Jerry Beckman.
Although it was a rain soaked experience, fun was had by all including both the father of Combat Medic Schumer, John and Steve’s son Maddock.
So it was truly a family affair …3 generations of Schumers, along with their neighbor Navy Veteran Jerry.
The fun started at the same “Lobstah Tailgate” we have attended every year since 2013. Clayton, Shannon and their crew of Maine Lobster fishermen come down and cook lobster for anyone who wanders by.
Brady had a great speech, while Warrior Wishes & Window World put on a great show for their heroes .
THANK YOU Army Combat Medic Steve Schumer and Navy Veteran Jerry Beckman for your service to our country.
THANK YOU Clayton and your crew of Maine fishermen for the tailgate &
THANK YOU Window World for sponsoring this experience!!!
