Los Sueños was thrilled to host 17 injured U.S. military veterans from April 7-11 for a Heroes Vacation. The soldiers were brought to Los Sueños through the Freedom Alliance Foundation www.freedomalliance.org, at the suggestion of Captain Tony Carrizosa.
These deserving soldiers were able to enjoy a wonderful time here in paradise thanks to the generosity of homeowners who donated their condominiums and boats, tour operators and management companies that gave away trips and services, and Bill Royster, who handled logistics and provided all meals, a welcome and an awards dinner. The highlight of their trip was surely the two-day “Jungle Rules” billfishing tournament, which resulted in 67 sailfish releases. Our sincere gratitude goes out to the many people who made this event possible and most of all, to these real American heroes.
