As we approach the 2017 holiday season and more importantly prepare to celebrate Christmas and Hanukah, we are reminded of those military men and women serving in the Armed Forces who have sacrificed so much to preserve our American way of life, young men and women who have bravely defended our freedom, every day, all over the world. When our battle weary and wounded troops come home, often times they are met with unexpected tragedies and challenges. Homelessness, unemployment, combat related illness and injuries, Traumatic Brain Injuries and Post Traumatic Stress are common threads that burden our military veterans.
The Texas Sentinels Foundation made a commitment to our wounded veterans more than ten years ago to help them on the homefront by helping to build new lives for our combat wounded veterans and that commitment still stands strong today. The good news is we have really made a positive impact on the lives of many combat wounded veterans and their families and we have done it efficiently and as good stewards of our donors’ contributions with 97% of all expenditures going directly to our combat wounded veterans.
Thank you for your incredible generosity on behalf of all of those who have given so much… our military and their families.
Just a friendly reminder that the 2018 Operation Lock n Load Sporting Clays tournament at Westside Shooting Center, Katy, Texas is scheduled for Saturday, 28 April 2018. See you there!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,
Richard and Jeanne Filip, Co-Founders
and the TSF Board of Directors
