NO QUIT, NO LIMITS, NO EXCUSES
The National Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team
AKA: USA PATRIOTS – continued service
Some see the glass as half full. Some as half empty. They see it as overflowing.
NO QUIT, NO LIMITS, PUSH ON and GIVE BACK.
They are a softball team like you’ve never seen.
Nearly twenty veterans of the post-9/11 era have
come together to form the WWAST; the
Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team. As
their name suggests, everyone on the team was is
a veteran and most use a prosthesis of some sort.
This remarkable team that has been featured on
HBO, ESPN, CBS Evening News, and Sports
Illustrated, just to name a few. Theirs is a mission
of a world with limits does not have to be limited.
Theirs is not a war story. It is not a political story.
They are simply an example of the human
condition at its very finest.
The team was formed in 2011. They play all over the country on weekends. Each comes from a
different place across the country. Wisconsin, Texas, California. They fly in on a Friday and are
back home Sunday night. They spread their mission with games and events, school, hospital,
and veteran visits, that anything is possible. By Monday they are back in their homes, tending
to families, school and jobs, waiting for the following Friday. This will be their seventh visit to
the NYC / Long Island area, in July 2020. The games are always free.
The team is not, nor has ever been affiliated with any other organization using the name " Wounded Warrior"
This website is for information on the WWAST and their events in the NY Metro area. We encourage you to visit the team's official website www.thewwast.org
