On Friday November 20th at the 33rd Annual Battle of the Badges Boxing Match, we honored USMC Gunnery Sgt. Chris Claude. He has been a member of the USMC since 1998 serving as Field Artillery Radar Leader, A Marine Recruiter and a Field Artillery Operations Chief. He was injured on 2/20/06 in Iraq;
"while on patrol as a military advisor to the Iraqi Police, Chris' team was ambushed by an Iraqi Improvised Explosive Device where he lost his right leg, left thumb, sustained numerous broken bones, burns and shrapnel wounds." He also suffered a traumatic brain injury. Look inside
for all the pictures and the story.

See above in 2014, the Boxing Team presenting to Building Homes For Heroes, a check for $7,000.00.
The charity that they named for this year's Match is also Building Homes For Heroes. USMC Sgt. Claude is on the list to benefit from this organization, AND BENEFIT HE DID! The 50/50 was a whopping $2700.00. "Lyndsey" won and gave it all back. So the 50/50 pulled in $5400.00. THANK YOU LYNDSEY!
Update: We had a few more donations so the total
money going to Sgt. Claude will be $6,600.00
MANY THANKS TO ALL!
Getting Ready for another year of Boxing.
