We’re happy to announce our first open mat event in honor of our nation’s veterans and active duty personnel. The event is free and open to all veterans and active duty personnel, regardless of affiliation or skill level. Non-military / Non-veterans are asked to bring a donation of toiletries, new/used coats, or to bring a veteran along to hang out with fellow veterans, shoot the shit, and tell war stories (more than likely greatly exaggerated).
All donations will go to Maryland Center for Veterans Education and Training (MCVETS) of Baltimore MCVET.Org. Through education and training MCVET provides homeless veterans and other veterans in need comprehensive services that enable them to rejoin their communities as productive citizens. As their motto states, “It takes an entire community to help a veteran heal.”
Mark your calendar and spread the word.
Monday, 12 November (Veterans Day observed) from 11:00 – 1:00 @ Ground Control Columbia, 9130 Red Branch Road Suite S, Columbia Md 21045.
Free beverages and snacks to be donated by Wegmans.
If nothing else (besides donating your time to a great cause) what better way to work up an appetite before eating all of those free Veterans Day meals?
