February 2010: Sid Trawick organized a trip after receiving an invitation to take 4 Wounded Warriors for a morning of fishing. We caught 41 rainbow trout, many weighing 2 pounds. After a bar-b-que lunch the soldiers took the fish home to share with their families and friends.
July 2009: The Alamo Chapter of AUSA 12th Annual “FOR THE SOLDIER” Golf Tournament was a huge success. We had a record number of participants with 144 players which resulted in two groups on each of the 18 holes of the Salido De Rio course at the Fort Sam Houston Golf Course. Even though San Antonio experienced one of the hottest summers on record, we had an overcast sky and a slight breeze which kept the temperatures in the high 90s for the 20 July 2009 event. Everyone was able to stay hydrated with plenty of free drinks available on the course. The addition of a refreshment stand at the turn provided grilled sausages and tortillas and other snacks to the hungry golfers. This event would not be possible without the generous contributions of our sponsors. The hole sponsors enabled several Wounded Warriors and other Soldiers to play for free. The many contributors of prizes and refreshments made the tournament a first class event. Special thanks go out to the volunteers who worked several long hours running the event. Several staff members of the Fort Sam Houston Golf Course commented that this was not only the largest but the most professionally run tournament hosted at their course. CSM Spencer played and represented HQ AUSA and finished in 2nd place Net. We raised over $20,000 and distributed literature in the golfers goodie bags and at the dinner.
1 Feb 2009: Sid Trawick served multiple dips, chips and other finger food to Wounded Warriors and their families during the Super Bowl, These included pieces of marinated pheasants wrapped in bacon with jalapeños and water chestnuts. Cost was about $200.
11 Feb 2009: Mark and Ozzie Barrett provided 60 tickets to the San Antonio Rodeo for Wounded Warriors and their families. These tickets were $50 or $75 each and were provided as gifts to the Warrior and Family Assistance Center.
