Southwest Louisiana is still basking in the glow of last weekend's Battle on the Bayou at McMurry Park in Sulphur. It was a two day event to raise money for the Wounded Warriors, who travel the nation showing Americans that you can overcome obstacles. These wounded veterans gave their all and won both softball games against an all-star team.
"The support that we get, that's how we do what we do," said Josh Wege, a member of the Wounded Warriors. "We wouldn't be able to tour the country and share our story with the nation. That story's a comeback story. Everyone needs to hear one of those. It's inspirational. If you're having a bad day, just think about it. Because it puts you in perspective of what is actually bad in life."
Organizer Jennie Finch-Daigle was overwhelmed at the community's support. Over 200-thousand dollars was raised for the Warriors.
"Absolutely incredible," said Finch-Daigle. "A great weekend, a weekend full of inspiration and true heroes. That's our Wounded Warriors and our servicemen and women and veterans."
For the Warriors, it was a chance to show us their resolve to live life to its fullest.
"Our day starts out with having to put feet on," said Wege. "How many people have to do that. Those aches and pains that you feel everyday? Just think about it. Hopefully we give you that fuel and that inspiration to live life because we're still living life."
So this week, we say thanks to all those involved. You are truly Hometown Patriots.
