Operation Support Our Wounded Warriors (OSOWW) hosted 13 wounded veterans and their spouses to Miami Marlins baseball game on July 2, 2015. The Miami Marlins provided the suite and OSOWW provided food and refreshments. The veterans received a gift bag from the Miami Marlins and OSOWW. They were able to be on the field for the Marlins batting practice and meet some of the players. This has been an annual event with the Miami Marlins for several years. We like to thank the Miami Marlins organization for their continued support of our wounded veterans and OSOWW.
