Ninety-three years ago today, the United States joined the world’s other great powers in signing the armistice that brought an end to World War I. In the years since, we use the anniversary of that date to commemorate and honor the brave men and women who have heeded their country’s call in times of conflict. This Veterans Day, BlazeSports joins people from across the country in offering our sincere thanks to everyone, past and present, who has donned a military uniform in defense of our country and to their families who sacrifice so much as well.
We at BlazeSports are seriously committed to serving the veterans who have so bravely served us. Our organization works closely with the Atlanta VA Medical Center and with veterans organizations throughout the southeast. Sport has proven to be an incredibly powerful instrument for rehabilitation and recreation, and we are proud to organize programming for veterans who are adjusting to life after battlefield injuries. Just this August, many of the veterans we worked with participated in the VA Wheelchair Games in Pittsburgh. Our commitment also extends to active-duty servicemen and women. As part of our continuing efforts with the Warrior Transition Unit (WTU) at Fort Stewart, we recently held a train-the-trainer archery event for 13 WTU members. We are humbled to work with so many brave individuals. There is no way we can repay our debt to those who have served, but we pledge to do all we can to serve them.
