Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation

83 GCL Perez

I had an incredible experience at an enchanting place with the most awesome people, hosted by angels, Mr. Brad and Mrs. Julie of Grand Ciel Lodge. It was the week before September 11, 2021, when I was called by Ms. Corrina Hart, who reached out to me. I was in New York City when Corrina and I confirmed the event. The timing was perfect due to having several surgeries to remove bullet fragments from my chest as well as treatments to my leg and back from injuries caused in Iraq. Spending priceless time with veterans who share the same views, experience and cohesiveness is what Wounded Warriors in Action created for me and all those combat-wounded Purple Heart recipients who are ready and able to participate in world class outdoor sporting events and activities. Thank you all for the memories that are so important in so many ways. I am humbled and blessed.
