Old Goats and Kids Who Care Say “Thank You”

Thank you for coming together to produce such a great weekend for these wounded warriors and families. Particular thanks to Tony Perri and Surfs Up Studios who produced this inspirational video.

The Old Goats and their ambassadors, “the Kids Who Care,” want to thank the people of Coronado who filled the Maretalia Ristorante on Sunday, November 12 to honor USA SGT Bryan Anderson and four fellow wounded warriors. Our co-hosts, the City of Coronado and the Hotel del Coronado, together with Bluebridge Hospitality Group, combined to make this a truly memorable event for all. In addition, Brigantine, Miguels, Costa Azul, and Bistro d’Asia restaurants each hosted a wounded warrior and family for dinner Veterans Day weekend while Carelyn Reynolds’ Coronado Cab generously provided free rides for all and Holly McPartlin of McP’s personally crafted the decorations. Mayor Bailey, Sam Ward, Casey Tanaka, and the irrepressible Nancy Ratcliffe combined to present an inspirational program. The Old Goats want to publicly thank the Travis Manion Foundation for our association over the past years and only because that foundation has become so successful nationwide have we decided to align ourselves in 2018 with a smaller foundation with strong local ties – the Charlie Keating IV Foundation. Best wishes to the new Coronado Travis Manion chapter. Thank you Coronado – the Goats and Kids together with Charlie Keating IV Foundation have big plans to continue to help wounded warriors and families in 2018.

SGT Weakley and Scarlett
