Meals for the Brave

Our own American Heroes will be competing against some of the most talented wounded warrior athletes in the Marine Corps Trials (MCT) at Camp Pendleton from April 12 – through April 22.  For only $25 you can make a difference for those Wounded Warriors competing .  Read on and see how…

Wounded, ill and injured service members will compete in seven sporting events taking place over 11 days at Camp Pendleton.  Archery, track and field, swimming, rowing, golf, powerlifting and shooting will comprise the various competitions. Making up the contestant fields will be active duty Marines, Veterans and service members.  These sporting competitions are extremely vital to these Warrior-Athletes as they continue to reclaim their lives after their devastating injuries.

DPSG will be stepping up their support of the Marine Corps Trials by providing meals to the Wounded Warriors for three lunch events: Track and Field on Thursday, April 15th, the  Archery events on Friday, April 16th, as well as the Shooting event on Tuesday, April 20th.  It is estimated that the cost for serving these meals to the athletes will be over $12,000. DPSG is extremely grateful to the Stanley W. Ekstrom Foundation who has made generous contributions for this worthy cause. But…we still need you to help us accomplish our mission in helping to provide lunches, beverages and snacks for these brave warriors.

You can help support these amazing wounded warriors still in the fight! Just $25 will buy lunch for one of these heroic athletes. Our own local patriots can make secure donations to help cover the cost of these meals through PayPal by clicking here:
