On July 12, 2023, Warrior Events invited Maryland Gold Star Mothers to the Annapolis Blues soccer game held at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, MD. In addition, the moms were invited to a tailgate prior to the game. It was a wonderful time of fellowship and good food. At the start of the game, the moms were escorted onto the field where an announcer introduced each mom and shared a brief statement about their Hero. The fans were wonderful and gave the moms an applause and standing ovation. The moms were given complimentary Navy Soccer t-shirts before being escorted to the Press Box to watch the game in the air conditioning! Navy won the game with a score of 4-1! Go Blues! Thank you, Bob Saunders and John O’Leary from Warrior Events, for inviting our moms to this wonderful event, and thank you to Fred Matthes for hosting us! Maryland Gold Star Moms Paula Davis, Janice Chance, Kelly Swanson, Donna Robinson, Yvonne Green, and Rosemarie Ceo attended the game.
