Allies For G.I.'s - Bolivar Bash

Bolivar Peninsula, TX, United States Bolivar Peninsula, Texas, Stati Uniti

I'm sure many of you are familiar with the hit Universal Pictures Movie "LONE SURVIVOR." Mark Wahlberg played the role of Navy SEAL Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell who is the ACTUAL Lone Survivor. The movie tells the harrowing, emotionally raw account and motivational story of his survival and the deaths of his comrades-in-arms in Operation Redwing, a mission to gather intelligence on Taliban leadership in Afghanistan. Marcus’ NEVER QUIT attitude was key to his survival and his recovery at home.

After surviving his operations in Afghanistan, Marcus returned home to his ranch in Texas, the center of his post-combat recovery and restoration. On the ranch, Marcus had time to recover, to think, and to feel the love and support of close friends and family as he healed his wounds. Based upon first hand experiences of what is needed to provide holistic healing beyond standard government programs, while honoring his lost comrades from Operation Redwing, Marcus established the Lone Survivor Foundation in 2010.

The intent was to bring the wounded service members into the same type of environment that healed Marcus. A place of solitude and beauty, where there was a close-knit and understanding support system. A place where the service members and their families could heal together as they all worked through the consequences of war. The Foundation is dedicated to honoring and remembering American service members by providing unique educational, rehabilitation, recovery, and wellness opportunities to U.S. Armed Forces members and their families.

The Lone Survivor Foundation restores, empowers, and renews hope for our wounded service members and their families through health, wellness, and therapeutic support. Overseas deployments and combat action can take a serious toll on everyone involved - from the men and women on the front lines to the friends and families who wait patiently for their loved ones to return home. America’s Armed Forces are asked to perform at exceptionally high standards in the most demanding circumstances and that service demands incredible sacrifice, dedication, and in some cases debilitating personal transformation. Transitioning to post-military life, whether wounded in combat or simply adjusting to the civilian sector, will often cause difficulty for the service member and his or her family. The unfortunate reality for many service members and their families is that life changes after the loved one returns home and the effects of their experiences begin to manifest in negative ways. In short, the normalcy of life prior to their service may have been lost forever. Therefore, the Lone Survivor Foundation is here to help America's wounded service members and their families adjust to the effects of their experiences and help them transition into what may be looked at as their 'new normal' – providing an understanding and acceptance of who they are as a person, a family, and a community.

This is a 2-Day LONE SURVIVOR FOUNDATION & USO sanctioned Memorial Day Weekend event & the members of the Parrish-Hundley Band wouldn't be able to DREAM up a better or more noble reason to throw a huge party on the Bolivar Peninsula near Crystal Beach, Texas. Proceeds from this event, known as Allies for G.I.s Bolivar Bash, will be used to help erect a veterans' retreat / beach house on the Bolivar Peninsula to be utilized by vets with invisible wounds such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It will be the very FIRST OF ITS KIND IN THE NATION and we are thrilled to be able to be a part of its building! We're absolutely HONORED to play a SMALL role in promoting such an unbelievably GREAT cause!

Come on out and join the Parrish-Hundley Band as we support our troops on this Memorial Day Weekend! Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard - All branches of service and ALL of their components - retired or on active duty! Three bands will be paying tribute to all those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom, those who served to protect our freedom and those who are on active duty now! We'll be playing the late Sunday evening show but don't wait on us! - Come out early and meet the brave men and women of our nations armed services! This is ONE show that we're absolutely elated to be asked to perform and can't wait to get it started!!

Lots of stuff to do between here and there and that means we need TONS of help to get the word out, not just for OUR show but for the entire event. So we need you to share this page with your friends, like the page and ask your friends to askTHEIR friends to do the same. Come out and join us and show your support for our nation's military! They've done so much, sacrificed so much and asked for so little in return.

"My name is Mike Parrish and I'm the Parrish of the Parrish-Hundley Band along with my buddy Sammy Hundley who is the Hundley of PHB. I am a VERY PROUD honorably discharged United States Army Veteran serving from 1983 to 1986 at Fort Bragg, NC. I love my country and I absolutely cherish the courageous men and women of our nation's armed services, I'd give every single one of them a GREAT BIG HUG if it was humanly possible to do so (and be willing to suffer the consequences from some). Besides the fun I've had being a part of the band I'm also a 22-year Texas Peace Officer veteran still proudly serving my community in Southeast Texas. I know a little something about sacrifice, as most peace officers do, and giving something of yourself for your fellow brothers and sisters which is why I am so elated about this show. Sammy and I, along with the band, have done a ton of shows but it's events like this one that really allows us to feel as if we're contributing to something that may mean so much to those who have GIVEN so much . . . . and they gave EVERYTHING for you and me."

Grab your friends, family, neighbors EVERY ONE YOU KNOW and come join us to make this event the most successful event in the history of America. Let's build such a beautiful retreat that it will become the envy of every state in the union so that MORE of these buildings will be erected for those who deserve it so very much. Thank you for your time and I truly hope to see you there!!!

Bet your boots I'll be there for all the shows and both days of this event!!!! I'll keep you posted on links to official pages as they become created.
