Military Warriors Support Foundation recently brought eight veterans to Patriot Point for a four-day retreat.
The guests traveled from Texas, Georgia, Virginia and Maryland and included five Purple Heart Recipients among the group of U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Army veterans. The retreat was a perfect fit for MWSF’s mission is to provide programs that facilitate a smooth and successful transition for combat-wounded veterans and Gold Star families.
“It was a great trip, everybody meshed really well,” MWSF program manager Daniel Robles said. “They’re all good friends now. You get the group together at first and everyone is quiet, but now they are all buddies and sharing phone numbers and contact information.”
The group arrived on a Monday, settling in and enjoying dinner, then took to the five-stand for skeet shooting on Tuesday after breakfast.
“Everybody was talking smack about how good they were, all in fun,” Robles said. “And it gave us a chance to meet the guys who were calling in the ducks for us the next day.”
The rest of the day included plenty of storytelling, TV and shooting pool in the Hemingway Room. Wednesday was cold – the impoundment was frozen over – as the group headed out before dark for a duck hunt.
“We got a rude awakening — the ducks were kicking our butts,” Robles said. “But we went back in and Joy had a great breakfast for us and warmed us up.”
No Warrior Left Behind recently brought a group of seven veterans and law enforcement officers to Patriot Point for an overnight retreat that included a duck hunt.
“We hung out the night before with [Patriot Point General Manager Hugh Middleton] – a lot of war stories and joking around,” said Aaron Bailey, president of No Warrior Left Behind. “It was such a great trip for everyone in the group.”
Everyone was up early the following morning for the duck hunt, then enjoyed a hearty breakfast.
“Just want to extend my extreme gratitude for the opportunity to take this little much needed getaway,” guest Bryant Strong said. “Everything ran super smooth, and I really enjoyed meeting new guys and sitting around the fire in the Main House sharing stories and laughs.
“The hunt in the morning was amazing despite the gnarly wind. It’s nice having the guides be LEO because it’s one more thing that makes the experience great because it made the trip more relatable and to meet fellow brothers in blue. The mallards were icing on the cake.”
Operation Restored Warrior recently hosted five veterans for a Drop Zone program at Patriot Point. The group included veterans from four branches of service: the Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps and Navy, and included one guest who served in the Vietnam War.
“The Operation Restored Warrior team of five worked with these men to reveal and heal from their life and military experiences,” said Timothy Harting, Operation Restored Warrior’s director of drop zone operations.
Freedom Hunters recently hosted a group of 11 veterans, including eight that served in combat. The group arrived on a Sunday night and enjoyed a tasty dinner while enjoying each other’s company. Then it was up early at oh dark thirty for the safety briefing and a duck hunt.
“Patriot Point is a perfect place for veterans to visit and also be able to relax and ease the mind,” said Tom Deoudes, regional director for Freedom Hunters. “It is also an incredible place for duck hunting. When you combine the two with eleven great warriors, you have a fantastic event.
“Hugh and Joy were great hosts and did everything they could to see that all had a wonderful time. Freedom Hunters is always honored to accept Patriot Point’s generous invites. It is ‘the perfect veterans retreat.’ Freedom Hunters couldn’t find a better partner to help to honor and thank the service and sacrifice of our great nation’s military men and women.”
