"These guys are amazing and what they've been through and how they've come out of it, we just appreciate what they've done for us and we want to show them our appreciation," District Manager for Waste Management Beverly Gilchrist said. Waste Management hosted the Cajun Cook-off at McMurry Park where the Wounded Warrior game was held.
