Thanks Blackfive & Uncle Jimbo  for sharing! 


POSTED BY UNCLE JIMBOImg_0650This Saturday three groups converged to show some love to the Wounded Warriors at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Soldier’s Angels
and Ranger Up put together a great day for about 25 of our finest warriors recovering at Mologne House. Soldier’s Angels put on lunch and homemade desserts for the warriors and their families while the UWC and Ranger Up brought former World Welterweight championMatt Hughes along with Army SF Weapons Sergeant and three times running All Army Combatives winner Tim Kennedy. Nick Palmisciano of Ranger Up said “We are thrilled to be able to help show these great Americans that their sacrifices are appreciated and will never be forgotten”.

Img_0684Soldier’s Angels presented three laptop computers complete with voice-activated software to attendees through their Valour-IT program and the warriors got t-shirts from Ranger Up signed by Matt Hughes. All of that would have made for quite a day, but they were just getting started.  The UWC provided tickets to the Man O’ War matches that night at GMU’s Patriot Center and Ranger Up rented a bus to drive them to the event. It was an amazing night of mixed martial arts action with plenty of submissions and several stunning knock outs. Ranger Up’s fighter Kris “Savage” McCray led things of with a submission win in the first round (video here) and the action never slowed down the rest of the night. You can help Soldier’s Angels continue to assist our warriors by donating to the Valour IT program here. All the groups look forward to more opportunities to spend time with these fantastic soldiers.
