Thanks for bringing the team down to Sulphur to play in the Battle of the Bayou softball games. It meant a lot to the community and you all did a lot to make all proud to be Americans. It is that indomitable spirit that your team displayed that makes our Nation great. Thanks for the difference you and your team are making. ATW!

In today’s society we pick our heroes based on notoriety or just because people know their name. We tend to forget the servicemen and women around the world that put their lives on the line everyday so that we can have the freedoms that were given to us as Americans. Other than their families, most people do not even know any of their names, so when their time is up they just come back home and live life as best they can. Many of these soldiers lose limbs and such but we hardly ever see or hear about them. But thanks to modern technology many are given prosthetics which enable them to do things they could not do without. That’s why I am writing this today, because it was such a tremendous honor to have played on the same field with individuals that have fought for and defended my freedoms as an American. The Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball team is an amazing group of guys that, despite the loss of limb(s), have exceeded everyone’s expectations and are able to travel around the country and play softball. They don’t care about notoriety or fame. They just want to have fun and be able to tell people their stories and I am glad that I have had the opportunity to be around them. If you ever get a chance go see these guys please tell them THANK YOU…

It was a true honor to be in the presence and work with the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team. It was amazing to see the determination of these young men to succeed on the diamond despite missing limb(s). Who ever would have thought it was possible? Combining prosthetics with baseball/softball to allow these men to play a game they love, is a tremendous story! People all over our country need to see these veterans and active duty soldiers up close to appreciate the power of the human spirit. Congratulations to all who are involved with the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team.

Tupelo, MS was honored to be able to host the national Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team in May 2012. These remarkable soldiers and veterans came and were very receptive to the things we asked them to do. They were glad to talk to the former military personnel who were there as well as the kids who were eager to learn about their injuries. This was a truly wonderful experience for me and our town. We definitely hope we are able to book them again in the future.

The Huntsville Sports Commission has hosted many events over the past 13 years. Having the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team play in Huntsville was one of our greatest highlights. I have never seen such a ground swell of support by so many community groups and Military service agencies to welcome these great heroes to Huntsville, AL. I was made aware of the team through a board member that saw the team featured on ESPN. I visited the website and found the contact information, picked up the phone and called Coach David Van Sleet, to my surprise he was familiar with Huntsville and had many friends in our city. Knowing that many communities were trying to get the team to come to them, we knew that we needed to come up with a good plan to convince them to visit us. We were successful and a date was selected to coincide with our Armed Forces Week celebration. The great thing about the team is that this is not just a softball team playing a softball game. They have an inspiring message to share, overcoming challenges and uniting communities that gives everyone a new outlook on life. I would highly recommend bringing the team to play in your community, we are glad that we did!
