2/19/13 – San Antonio: What an unexpected Honor!
This morning the Officers of the Wimberley VFW Post 6441 drove down to San Antonio to make a donation to the Returning Heroes Home Board of Directors. It was a very pleasant surprise to find that Senator Cruz was to arrive shortly after our presentation to the Board of the Returning Heroes Home of a $3,000 donation.
Our Wimberley VFW Post 6441 was tremendously humbled to participate with Texas Senator Ted Cruz in Chief Warrant Officer Jerry Hamilton’s Purple Heart ceremony at Brooke Army Medical Center. The ceremony was to honor the the service of CWO Hamilton. He is an American Hero and the officers of our Wimberley Post 6441, Commander Glen “Corky” Gibbs, Sr. Vice Commander Michael Harthcock and Judge Advocate James Clements were present at the Returning Heroes Home purely by coincidence to make a donation to the Returning Heroes Home Board of Directors.
What a great honor to be present at this very moving ceremony when Senator Cruz presented the Purple Heart to CWO Hamilton.The Returning Heroes Home is a Privately funded Veterans Center located adjacent to the Center for the Intrepid at the Brook Army Medical Center.
The Wimberley VFW Post 6441 is proud to be able to support the Returning Heroes Home. Today we presented a check for $3,000 to the Board representing the profits derived from out recent “Cowboy – Wounded Warrior Golf Tournament” at the Valor Creek Golf Club in Blanco, Texas.
