The US Military WarDogs took a trip to Camp LeJune, NC earlier this week to visit the Hope for the Warriors headquarters and deliver 30 shadow boxes containing the Fallen Heroes jerseys worn by WarDogs players during the SummerBall Showdown in Goddard, Kansas in August.
Each shadow box displayed a Fallen Heroes jersey with the name of the a Fallen service member on the back as well as a Hope for the Warriors and WarDogs patch. The WarDogs are honored and humbled to represent those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in front of the WarDogs patriotic fans and supporters.
Hope for the Warriors is a proud partner of US Military WarDog Baseball and was instrumental in supporting the creation of the Fallen Hero uniforms. Now that Hope has the jerseys and shadowboxes, they will be sending them to each of the families of the fallen that were represented.
Players and coaches from Norfolk and from the newly formed Camp LeJeune WarDogs team were present to hand over the displayed jerseys. One of those present from the newly formed WarDogs LeJune was player/coach Gunnery Sgt Josh McNeil.
“It was great experience and I’m glad I got to meet the Hope for the Warriors representatives; hopefully we will be able to connect a lot more with them now that the Camp LeJune team has formed.” – Josh McNeil, Player/Coach Camp LeJeune WarDogs, Marine
The WarDogs will be working with Hope for the Warriors later this week as we recognize a Veteran dealing with PTSD at the NABA Worlds tournament being held in Phoenix, AZ.
Never Forget our Military. Never Forget our Veterans. Never Forget our Fallen.
