Many Thanks from the Crew of the 2016 Winter Warrior Games!
  • President’s Day Weekend 2016 brought the 3rd Annual Penn State Extension Military Youth Program’s Winter Warrior Games Weekend Teen Retreat to Central Pennsylvania. Military teens from across the state joined us for a winter adventure despite the bitter cold temperatures. Reduced funding this year put this popular annual event at risk of being cancelled. Through the generosity of outside businesses and organizations such as the USO, the 2016 Winter Warrior Games Teen Retreat was a huge success. The USO stepped up to the plate and sponsored a portion of our weekend. Liberty USO’s generous support contributed to making the weekend a great experience for all who attended. As one Winter Warrior Games teen attendee stated, “Best weekend I had in months, usually it’s just sitting around at home in the winter, but we actually got to go outside of our caves and have fun”.
