All of the Warriors had an awesome experience.  From the Private Jet to the Red Sox win & getting to hang out with each other all day long, it was a day they will never forget.  Lcpl Snyder told us “I can’t stop telling people about it.  I had an Awesome time!”

The day after the game we received the following email from His mom. 

“I just wanted to thank you very much to offer my son the experience of a lifetime.  He was so excited about the trip and could not stop talking about it when he arrived home.  He was very appreciative of the offer and so was his wife and myself.  He has not been so happy in such a very long time and this was so uplifting for him and his brother. He also met Christopher Levi and Arthur Bonjour and hopes that they will become lifelong friends. Everyone involved all the way to the end of the evening treated my son’s to a great day they will never forget.”

Comments like that keep is going. It’s so much more than just a game. It’s an experience!  it’s an opportunity for us to show these warriors that their service & sacrifices are appreciated & will never forgotten. 

Operation Warrior Wishes would like to thank Joe, Karen & Eileen from PALS (Patient Air Lift Services) as well as the Boston Red Sox for their continued support to help make Warrior Wishes Come True! You guys continue to knock it out of the park!

Teaming Up With “PALS” To Make Warrior Wishes Come True In Boston!


Just a few days ago we received a phone call from an organization called Patient Air Lift Services (PALS).  They were looking to team up with us on a mission to host and honor Warriors at Fenway Park in Boston.  

th

Patient AirLift Services arranges volunteer medical flights and free air transportation for needy individuals throughout the greater Northeast region, from Virginia to Maine, Ohio to Massachusetts.

Every year, PALS organizes short private jet Baseball excursions for Warriors on the east coast as well.  PALS gave us the opportunity to nominate a handful of Warriors to fly on a private jet from White Plains, NY to Boston for the Red Sox game on April 16th.

USMC Gunnery SGT Christopher Claude (one of our first guests ever), Marine SGT Johnny Lopez, Army SGT Alex Rodriguez & Warrior Ryan Brandisano had an experience of a lifetime on the trip.  

The Warriors were treated to field passes before the game and got to take pictures in the Red Sox dugout.

They sat in the best seats in the house to watch the Red Sox take on the Blue Jays & got to sit in the most coveted seats at Fenway Park.  They sat on top of the “Green Monster!”

We would like to thank PALS for this opportunity & for helping provide these unforgettable memories to the Warriors. We look forward to partnering up with them again on future missions!

Just 3 days after these warrior wishes came true at Fenway Park, many of our past guests competed in the Boston Marathon.  

From Boston bombing survivors to Wounded warriors we cheered them on from Chicago as they continued to inspire and never give up.  We are extremely proud of all of them for showing us that nothing is impossible!  

My dad will be back on the road next week Making Warrior Wishes come true in Detroit.
