Editor, the Advocate:
The Cowboys and Cowgirls of the Cowboys For Heroes event at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio wish to thank everyone who donated time and money to this great event. We had about 2,000 smiling soldiers and their wonderful families there.
This was our sixth year and way, way our biggest. The money went to feed and entertain soldiers and their families from all the different branches of the American freedom forces.
We had Jerry Diaz - World Champion Charro and his family act. We also had Desert Reign - the No. 1 country gospel group in America. You should have been there just to see the smiles on these soldiers' and there families' faces. You could tell the whole event was blessed by God. Again, thank you, thank you everyone.
