Military veterans representing the Wounded Warriors Amputee Softball Team recently visited with staff and students at Sycamore Avenue Elementary School to talk about the honor that comes with serving the country, along with their schedule of upcoming games.

The Wounded Warriors in attendance each lost their limbs while serving in either the Marines or U.S. Army, taking part in the Afghan and Iraq campaigns. The purpose of the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team is to inspire and educate others while promoting the health and welfare of other wounded veterans. In honor of their visit, the Sycamore students prepared flags, banners and wrote letters of thanks and respect, which were presented to the veterans during the visit.
