On March 28th, 2015, we held our first Taps clinic in the state of Texas. Seven high school students from the North Texas area attended and are now ready to volunteer. We now have volunteers in Allen, Dallas, Richardson, Wylie, Rockwall, Prosper, Flower Mound, and White Wright.
This event was supported by:
-North Texas Patriot Guard Riders
-Lone Star Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America
-Oak Point Recreation Center
-Wise Funeral Home
The Plano Star Courier helped promote the event and published our pictures on the front page on March 8th and April 2nd.
