Thank you to the nearly 600 people to attended Warriors for Warriors this year. It was the biggest crowd yet and a wonderful celebration of life, courage, and community.

Warriors for Warriors takes place every year at Kirtland Air Force Base, where gynecologic cancer patients, survivors, and their families are hosted by the 58th Special Operations Wing for a joint salute to courage. This year’s event featured astronaut and hero Jerry Linenger as keynote speaker.
