Ohio Challenge and Warrior Weekend to Remember

Thanks to Selection.com and Team Fastrax for sponsoring this past weekend’s Ohio Challenge and the Warrior Weekend to Remember.   What a fantastic weekend for the city despite not one hot air balloon making it into the air due to weather.

My wife and I had the privilege of attending the Warrior Weekend to Remember dinner with the Mayor and his wife, the Police Chief and his wife, Judges Melynda and Greg Howard, and MPD sergeant Steve Ream who is also a member of the Fastrax organization.   This is my third Warrior Weekend and the personal stories and love given to our veterans are incredibly powerful every time with an amazing group of Purple Heart recipients and Gold Star families who have lost a family member in combat.

Mayor Mulligan gave a Proclamation and John Hart and his brother David oversaw the festivities at the Dinner.   MPD Honor Guard presented our colors.

After dinner, the Warriors and Gold Star families were honored at the Ohio Challenge, followed by live music, a demonstration jump Team Fastrax, a Balloon Glow, a nighttime Fireworks jump by Team Fastrax and then a full fireworks show.

 

Truly a great evening with a great crowd.  A wonderful time for our hero veterans and all who attended the event.

Oh… and I totally have picked out my Halloween costume for next year.  I AM WAR MACHINE….  lol.
