Roommates + Rifles: Army Soldiers Alison Weisz + Sagen Maddelana
This quarter, Beasley Best Community Of Caring is focusing on helping our veterans who have served our country; we’re also paying tribute to their families.
We’re working with Home Base, a national organization that provides mental health services for Veterans who have served our grateful nation. Home Base is a collaboration between the Boston Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital; it is based in Boston, with a division in Southwest Florida, and provides extensive mental health and wellness support for vets and their families.
Home Base has provided mental and brain health care and support for more than 20,000 Veterans and military families over the past decade and established the nation’s first private sector center of excellence for the invisible wounds of war.
This week, we have an interview with Specialists Alison Weisz and Sagen Maddelana. They are U.S. Army Active Duty Soldiers assigned to the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit International Rifle Team at Fort Benning, Georgia. Sagen and Alison are colleagues, roommates and friends and they also competed in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games, representing Team USA in the 10 meter Air Rifle and the 50 meter Three Position Smallbore Rifle events.
