Police were called out to a fight at Walmart. Instead, a football game broke out

Police came looking for a fight. Instead, they found more than a dozen teenagers and young adults who they say were playing football late at night. The young people said the heat has kept them trapped indoors during the day.

Officer Rachel Ayuso, one of three officers to respond to the fight call at about 1 a.m. Thursday at the Walmart Supercenter on Southwest Wilshire Boulevard, said the 15 to 20 people stopped playing when police rolled up.

“They looked in our direction, maybe thinking we were going to tell them to leave,” Ayuso said.That’s when the officers hatched another plan, Ayuso said. Officer Jason Tauch came up with the idea to line up next to the players and light up the parking lot with their vehicles’ bright takedown lights.

Task Force Vet Visits‘ mission is to visit and assist U.S. Veterans of all ages, branch, color or religion. We are a brother and sisterhood that is like no other. We want to share as much information to all of Our Brothers and Sisters that have served Our Country. No Active Duty, Veteran, Gold Star or Blue Star should ever feel alone nor feel like there is help available.

We try to put the spotlight on many national and local resource and organizations that help our Brother and Sister Veterans.

In the summer of 2018 we will be doing our 2nd official cross country trek on motorcycles to visit as many Active Duty, Veterans, Gold Stars or Blue Stars as possible. In 2017, we travelled 8200 miles across the country with 19 stops. 17 stops were to visit with individuals. 2 were larger publicized events which we were able to introduce our Brothers and Sisters to local organizations.

If you are Active Duty, Veteran, Gold Star or Blue Star and would like a visit then let us know. There is no pressure. We are not selling anything. We don’t ask for money or anything else. We offer our time to get to know you and let you know you are not alone. We care about you because you are our family regardless if we have met you or not. We can meet for coffee, lunch, dinner or a bottle of water at a gas station. Your choice.

If you are an organization supporting Veterans then let us know. We will share your message on our facebook page and help you spread the word.

We are based out of Massachusetts. Throughout the year we will visit with Veterans in New England. We also have team members in Florida, Illinois, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia that are available to visit throughout the year in addition to our annual trip.
