WOUNDED WARRIOR 'HOME FOR CHRISTMAS PROJECT"
December 11, 2014
The CFC sponsored two wounded warriors from the Wounded Transition Battalion at Fort Bragg as part of the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) “Home for Christmas Project.”
President Juan Chavez presented a $1,200 check on behalf of the CFC to LTC (Ret) Art Macaltao, the Commander of the Fort Bragg Chapter of the MOPH who in turn, asked President Chavez to present the individual $600 checks directly to two wounded warriors.
