Wounded veterans participate in a charity flag football game in Phoenix on Jan. 28.

The Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team scored another victory over retired NFL players in a game called “A Tribute to Heroes, Game of Honor” that was attended by about 10,000 people on January 28 in Phoenix.

The focus is on the heroes and not the score in this series of charity flag football games held around the country to raise awareness and support for the nation’s veterans and their families.

The game Wednesday night in Phoenix was the third consecutive WWAFT game that Humana has sponsored preceding a Super Bowl and the fifth overall. Proceeds from the game benefit the Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team and various disabled veterans organizations in Arizona.

  • I want to thank Humana for sponsoring this wonderful event. I got tickets and my son n law took my 14 yr old grandson and his football coach and some other players on his team. Not knowing what to expect having never been to anything like this before, my grandson came home and said thanks for the tickets it was awesome. He said they had so much fun and just seeing the wounded warriors having fun and playing gave the boys inspiration to work harder playing football. Again thank you I have a Marine grandson and I appreciate Humana for sponsoring this event

  • Flag football games are a wonderful way to support the men and women of our Armed Forces! I’m proud that Humana is willng to sponsor these events. It’s a great opportunity to bring people of all ages together for a common goal, a common good. From the pictures, it looks like a good time was had by all.
