HICKAM AIR FORCE BASE, HAWAII – Fifty U.S. Marine Corps and Army Wounded Warriors meet Mixed Martial Arts Ultimate Fighting Lightweight Champion, BJ Penn at the Officer's Club here Sept.18. Penn was here for the 2009 Open House, and took time out of his busy flying and meet-and-greet schedule to express his appreciation for military servicemembers who have been wounded in action. There are several Wounded Warrior programs in Hawaii. Services include entitlement and benefits counseling; educational and employment assistance; transition and family services; and travel pay for family members on Invitational Travel Orders. Additionally, the center offers substance abuse information and referral for family members, and it coordinates legal and pastoral services. (U.S. Air Force photo by Vanessa M. Forloine)
