Dressed in their bandanas, rocking their eye patches, and proudly waving their swords, the students were being treated to a day with Miami Dolphins players and members of the MDWO as part of the Dolphins ongoing military appreciation initiative.

“These kids' parents are in the military, so for us to come out here and just support them, with their parents out there supporting us, and serving our country, so anything we can do for their families and make their day,” Trusnik said.
The day concluded with the defeat of Barnacle Bill, treasure to take home, and smiles on everyone’s faces.
