ABOUT

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 on July 22, 23, 24

.. The games are always free. 

The team is not, nor has ever been affiliated with any other organization using the name " Wounded Warrior"
