I know I have had this up before and other BLOGs have also been gracious enough to keep it in the spotlight as well.
On September 8th & 9th the members of the Salisbury Fire Department will be hosting the 2nd Annual Michael McMullen Softball Tournament to be held this weekend at the Henry S. Parker Athletic Complex on Naylor Mill Rd.
Mike was a firefighter/paramedic with the Salisbury Fire Dept. and was on duty in Iraq with his National Guard Unit when in December of 2005 the convoy he was ridding in was attacked. In an attempt to save a fellow soldiers life Mike was very seriously injured in a secondary attack. Mike succumbed to his injuries in January 2006.
The fellow soldier he was engaged in protecting survivied.
A paramedic scholarship was set up at Wor-Wic Tech in Mikes good name and honor. The proceeds from these annual softball tourneys go towards the scholarship in order to provide financial assistance to those aspiring to contribute to community service. By attending the tournaments and supporting your favorite team you support the scholarship and the fond memory of Mike McMullen.
I sincerely thank all the other sites that have published & promoted this event. Hope to see you there!
