Warriors at the Rose Bowl

Warriors to Summits Alum stand posed in front of a red stage coach with flowers on top. They all match in red jackets and No Barriers capsThis past January, Wells Fargo invited several Warriors to Summits Alum to ride on their float in the legendary Rose Parade in Pasadena, California. Below are Mark’s sentiments about the event and a video highlighting the veterans at the parade.

It was an honor to ride on the Wells Fargo stagecoach during the Rose Bowl Parade and see all the smiling faces, hands waving, and hearing the oceans of laughter. It made my heart swell with joy and caused me to realize, once again, that every American is worth fighting for. This experience was such a contrast to having served in the Middle East where it is a struggle just for the people to survive from day to day. Had I known that I was going to lose my leg prior to serving this great nation I would do it all over again.

I am grateful that a large corporation such as Wells Fargo recognizes and appreciates what the veterans have done for our country. Proud to be an American!
