The POAT sponsors this ceremony every year in conjunction with Miami-Dade Fire
Rescue. This ceremony is to remember and honor our country’s heroes who were killed in the line of duty responding to the attack on our nation. It is important that we never forget all of the heroes that perished that tragic day. Please make every effort to attend.
The POAT Golf Tournament at Indian Creek that was rained out on April 29, 2015 is in the process of being rescheduled for some time in October 2015.
Once the date has been solidified we will let you know. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
Operation Support Our Wounded Warriors (OSOWW) will be hosting the Wounded Warriors Amputee Softball Team to a tournament and Celebrity Softball game December 12-13, 2015. Many of you may remember this group of American Heroes participated in a tournament several years ago and they were an inspiration to everyone they came in contact with. The players will arrive several days prior to the tournament to partake in several activities we are scheduling. If you would like to volunteer to assist in the planning and implementation of the event contact the POAT Office.
Thanks for your support and stay safe.
