Wounded Warrior heroes coming to Barnesfield

Their motto “Life without a limb is limitless” is a lasting legacy of military veterans turned softball athletes. The price these veterans of post 9/11, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars paid for service is worn with a badge of courage.
On April 26, the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team (WWAST) will compete at Barnesfield against area teams from the King George surrounding community. A portion of the entry fees will benefit the WWAST program.

For these valued athletes of the softball diamond, winning is defined by something more than just a score. Although the entire team is comprised of amputees, they actively compete against able-bodied teams throughout the country.

While the challenge of overcoming amputations from the arm, above and below the knee and foot has been an adjustment, the thrill of driving home the winning run or running down a base hit has given these veterans a renewed sense of pride.

After realizing the importance of reintroducing amputee veterans back into the competitive sports arena, Southwest Health Care Network prosthetics manager David Van Sleet began the task of recruiting a team of players. “Even though these guys suffered a serious setback, they’re able to overcome it, persevere and move forward,” Sleet said.

The primary goal of WWAST is to raise awareness through celebrity and exhibition softball games. The featured events will remind the public of the sacrifices and resilience of our military, while showcasing their ability to rise above the challenge.
