Arm wrestling.
FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas – Joyce Dalton stares down Travis Browne as the two grit their teeth and prepare for an “arm wrestling” battle July 16 at the Warrior and Family Support Center. Dalton, a volunteer with the WFSC, met Browne, a mixed martial artist with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, as he toured the center and met with wounded warriors and their family members. The WFSC was Browne’s last Fort Sam Houston stop, which also included visits at the Jimmy Brought Gym and the main Post Exchange. Browne said his visit with the warriors, and his tour of the facility, were memorable events for him. “This wasn’t what I was expecting to see on a military base,” he said. “It looks like a resort. There is hope for humanity when people can come together and build something like this for Soldiers.”
