PRESS RELEASE — Jun 17, 2019

TEMPLE — The William R. Courtney Texas State Veterans Home announced our Veterans participation in Beyond the Battlefield/The Tiegen Foundation’s “Warrior Weekend”, on Friday, June 21, 2019. The event will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the William R. Courtney Texas State Veterans Home. 

The event will begin with a ceremony, the singing of the National Anthem by Donavan Lee and a Patriotic Skydive by Nathan Moore. A cookout for our Veterans and their families will follow.

Beyond the Battlefield/The Tiegen Foundation is dedicated to providing support and resources for wounded warriors as they face the many challenges they encounter during rehabilitation, reintegration, and the healing process.  By including wounded members in various foundation-sponsored events, they aim to motivate, encourage and afford Veterans the opportunities they might not otherwise have had. The Foundation’s focus is to lift Veteran spirits while reminding them that there is more Beyond the Battlefield and that their sacrifices will never be forgotten.
