Title:
Marines
Body:
Due to the weather, the Wounded Warriors activities for today were canceled.   We were able to have the Welcome Abroad at the Irving Convention Center last night and it was a resounding success.
 
William Wahrmund and Warrior Patriot Resources has taken it upon himself to organize  and underwrite an ALL Hands Party for the Wounded Warriors tonight commencing at 1830 at the HOOTERS located in the West End on 2201 N  Lamar. It will last until closing.
 
William has drafted many local hosts, among whom will be DPD officers and a former Cowboy Cheerleader.
 
If you are nearby, please stop by and help William show these 37 Marines what Texas hospitality really means. General Weber certainly did his part last night, now you do yours. If you think you're too old to come, then get on the hook and contact as many OIF and OEF vets you can and get them down there.
 
Attached you will find expanded Bios on each of them without names.  If you see a unit you served with and think you might know of these kids, call me at 214 927-6897 if you want his name.
 
Below is that same attachment.
This could really be a cool deal.
See you tonight at Hooters
