‘A special essence’

That is evident in the Wounded Warrior events, Silva said, because the events are not a weeklong or month-long undertaking. The events do not reflect a temporary state of mind.

“The locals there are always talking about how to make the events better,” Silva said. “It is not a part-time thing for Port St. Joe. They aren’t there for themselves. It is not about Port St. Joe.

“They don’t want to do it better for Port St. Joe. They want to do it for the warriors and family and there is a difference. A big difference.”


Tickets remain for the May 15 Honor Banquet to celebrate the service of 20 warriors and their caregivers. There are a limited number of tickets. Tickets are $25 for those who have pledged at least a $100 donation to the Forgotten Coast Wounded Warrior Weekend and $50 for all others. Please contact George Duren at Duren’s Piggly Wiggly for tickets.
