This weekend a group of pretty special people will be descending upon DeLand, Florida as a part of the Defending Freedom Wounded Warrior Weekend (go ahead and say that five times fast!).
This gathering is a part of the bigger Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) which is a project that seeks to assist American soldiers that have been severely injured in the line of duty in either Iraq, Afghanistan or other locations around the world.
Complete Parachute Solutions (CPS) is coordinating the event, with the support of many skydiving companies and local businesses. This is the 4th annual event and this time around 34 wounded warriors are attending. Quite a few of them will have the opportunity to make a jump at Skydive DeLand on Friday – and then those that are so inclined will be playing in a golf tournament on Saturday.
More information can be found on a website dedicated to the event or on the Facebook fan page.
