“I don’t measure a man’s success by how high he climbs, but how high he bounces when he hits bottom,” General Patton is noted as saying.
"I think he was talking about the internal strength and the human spirit of our soldiers when he said this. It is a privilege to be a part of this event and to be a part of giving back to our Wounded Warriors as they have given so much to all of us," said Wendell Presgrave owner and founder of My Plumber Heating and Cooling, Northern Virginia's top heating and cooling company.
He was talking about the Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team which is composed of men and women who lost a limb in Iraq or Afghanistan in their service to our country. Former Redskins star Brian Mitchell, along with former NY Giants and current TV star Dhani Jones, will host this event. They will be joined by more than 25 other popular and well-known Washington Redskins and NFL Alumni.
The event will be held on November 16th from noon until 3:00 p.m. at Bishop O’Connell High School, McMurtrie Field, 6600 Little Falls Road, Arlington, VA. The cost for the event is $20/Adults, $10/Children.
