Sticks for Soldiers, a benefit tournament for wounded troops in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, has become a Thanksgiving weekend tradition.
The sixth annual edition of the 7-on-7 event was held Saturday in Connecticut at Fairfield Ludlowe High School and drew 30 teams from Connecticut.
All proceeds benefit Brendan Marrocco, 23, an Army specialist from Staten Island, who is undergoing physical theraphy at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., after a vehicle he was being transported in was hit by an Explosive Fired Projectile in Iraq and he became the first veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to lose all four limbs in combat and survive.
