It was a beautiful day for lunch on the patio at West End Pizza.  There was a varity of pizza, spaghetti with meat balls, another delicious pasta and salads available on the buffet.  If you left hungry it was your own fault. There were lots of raffel items and some silent auction treasures all donated by local busines and/or residents. 
 Wounded Warriors at Nebo (WWAN) is so blessed to have supporters like Janet & Hal Degenhardt.  This is the third year they have held this event to raise funds that help us provide respite to the wounded, injured and ill and their families. Of course for the event to be sucessful requires people to attend and be generous.  And you WERE!! Thank you for your continued support!!

A surprise guest was Ms. U.S.A.  Earth.  She is a veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan.  Last year as Ms. Texas she happened to be in town, heard about the event and joined us.  It was great to see her again.

What a Great Time!

I'm on vacation using my iPad and can't seem to figure out how to get to the photos from this event to include some here. However they are all posted on Facebook. Hope you'll go there after reading this and enjoy them.  They are the photos posted September 11.

 Saturday (9/5) people gathered at the Hanger Hotel Conference Center for the USO Dinner/Dance/Fund Raiser benefiting Wounded Wattiors at Nebo Ministry.  Looking around one could believe they had stepped back in time to the 1950's.  There were nurses wearing those white uniforms topped with the crisp white nurse's hat, a pilot in his flight uniform, several military uniforms including a sailor wearing his original uniform, the local mobster & his girl and many many more.  They all came in "USO" dress to paticipate in the best costume contest.  The Bill Smallwood orchastra added to the ambience with music from the 40s & 50s.

Guests of honor included Major Margie Youngblood (USA Retired), Kentucky; SSGT Dan Burgess (USA Retired) & Genette; Florida, Captain Paul Shereve (USA Retired) & Paula, San Antonio; GySgt. Steven York (USM Retired) & Stacy, Fredericksburg; Lt. John Arroyo & Angel, (USA) Fort Hood, Killeen, TX;  Sgt. Mickael Clemann (USM Retired) & Nancy, Fredericksburg.  Several shared testimoney relative to their service and experience with Wounded Warriors at Nebo.

In addition to the great music there were numerous silent auction items which local merchants and individuals had donated.  There was constant action around them with people placing bids and  watching items they really wanted.

Thank you seems so inadequate to express our appreciation to all the people who attended the event, purchased silent aucttion items and bought raffle tickets for the utility vehicle.  Your generosity will enable this Ministry to continue providing R&R and/or Retreat Weekends for the wounded, injured and ill.

And then there are the Incredible, Energetic, Wonderful women who organized everything.  Ladies, YOU ROCK!!

Pizza For a Purpose

     In October, 2013, West End Pizza planned a welcome home party for Hal Degenhardt who had just returned from Afghanistan.  Somewhere in the planning the welcome home was transformed into a fund raiser to benefit Wounded Warriors at Nebo Ministry (WWAN).  What an unexpected blessing for the new local ministry.

Your Big Chance!

There is this incredible group of ladies who are working together to raise money for this Ministry.  One of the things they are doing is raffling off the Utility Wagon pictured below.  Tickets are $50 each but they are only selling 250 which increases your chance of winning.  The drawing for the winner will be September 5th at the USO Dinner/Dance (also a fund raiser).  You do not have to be present to win.  

All proceeds will be used to help continue providing Retreats, R&R weekends and Day Events for wounded, injured & ill in the WTB at Fort Sam Houston.

Company B Family Day

On a hot summer day in August for a few hours families came together, they put the hardships and demands of work and recovery on hold to celebrate life. The Fredericksburg Wounded Warriors at Nebo  helped bring relaxation and spiritual mending to some of our most deserving service men and women.

On August 14, 2015 approximately 35 veterans and their families converged on the Lazy U Ranch located in Seguin Texas. Nestled under majestic pecan and cypress trees is a piece of heaven. Families took part in archery, fishing, kayaking, self defense classes, swimming, and board games. Some braved the old fashion rope swing and others sat back and simply enjoyed the peacefulness of children's laughter and the bond only blood brothers and sisters could understand. There was also bingo, bike riding and a good old fashion Texas barbecue. 

The true art of service is to give without expectation, through the hard work of many, families that have sacrificed so much were blessed to at least for this day come together to enjoy what being a American hero is all about!
