Hey Jim, I just wanted to say thank you for everything you've done for us. I'm a strong supporter for the WFTW. if there's any way we can help, please don't hesitate to give me a call. I'd like to help donate for next year's event. Again, thank you Jim.

Thank you so much for sharing this. It is responses like yours that make our efforts all worth it! If there is anything that we can do to help you convince the powers that be that this is a worthwhile event, please let us know. I am positive that we will do what we can to help make it happen. Todd
Made your day AND mine!!! THANKYOU!! It is such an honor...ANY day...to bring a smile to the face of someone so willing to serve this GREAT COUNTRY!!!
Ok, already I have been telling a lot of soldiers and wounded family from the wars about my experiences with you all. They kick themselves in the butt for not joining this last trip. Jim and everyone else who put all this hard work together - I am going to make a promise to all of you and I don't break my promises. I will guarantee that next year there will be double if not more. If anyone else wants to put a challenge together, let me know. I am promising you all that I will get more soldiers there.... Thanks again for a hell of a day...I still can't stop talking about this event. I will be posting the pictures I took along with videos on my Facebook which is majority soldiers. Thanks again and I will have a lot more than 40 the next time I come down.

Thank you so much Mr. Hatfield,
My guys and I had a great time. I have been boasting to all of my peers about the wonderful work that all of you were doing for us; and allowing me to be a part of it. For this, I am thankful. It is awesome to know that we have so many supporters and patriots that contribute numerous hours and resources in our favor, for this I am thankful. You have no idea of how wonderful it was to be a part of this event. I know next year is going to be even bigger and better. I am going to make plans and attempt to arrange my schedule to make sure that I will be able to attend. No matter if I am here personally or not, you will have the support of my guys, and they will keep it going. Maybe next year we can get the .50cal mounts to go on the dune-buggy. Once again thank you and the entire team for all that you do, you guys are all awesome.

It was such an awesome experience to be a part of Northwest Dodge, Jim Hatfield's, Wheelers for the Wounded ? seeing the dealership come alive with the beautiful American Flag ? everyone in their nice red polo shirts!, and all the patriotic feeling throughout. As the director for National Memorial Ladies and KIA Memorial Monument, I was honored to be part of this united celebration. It was a reminder that all of us need to stay connected ? that the community stay together in supporting our brave men and women of the military, and their families. There is an epidemic of disconnection ? and all the organizations there, will make certain that this does not continue. It was wonderful for all of us to be a voice for our soldiers and their families ? that we will make certain that no one is forgotten, the one's who come home, and the soldiers who did not. It was great coming together with Northwest Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep-Ram!! ? having the opportunity to meet everyone that was involved ? and being reminded how absolutely Blessed we are. The warriors have a commitment to this Nation ? and we will continue our commitment to all of them. Thanks Jim for working so hard to bring us all together ? Mission well done my friend!

First of all I would like to say thank you for allowing me to participate in your great event. It was an honor. When I first reported to Houston for duty as a recruiter I never imagined the type of fantastic events that I would have the opportunity to be a part of. Your event for the Wheelers for the Wounded was no exception. Seeing the support from you, your staff, and the community was simply overwhelming. It's not often that I get choked up, but it was all I could do to compose myself when having the opportunity to speak to your guests. As a Marine, I love what I do. Deploying is both an adventure and a challenge for me that I willingly accept. Having deployed twice to the middle east, I feel lucky to have helped out in the fight against terror. I also feel fortunate that I have come home safely both times, but I know that is not always the case with everyone else. When a Marine comes home wounded, that individual's greatest support comes from people like you. People who have no obligation to say thank you or lend a helping hand, but you do it anyway. It not only assists in the Marine's recovery, but it lets them know that they are appreciated. Thank you again, Sir and I look forward to working with you in the future.
