Tip Of The Spear wishes to gratefully acknowledge and thank the following for their support of our soldiers and marines.
Richie’s Specialty Pharmacy
Richie’s Specialty Pharmacy, located in Conroe, Texas, and has been a stalwart supporter of the Tip Of The Spear since we ﬁrst started sending support to our Soldiers and Marines. This pharmacy is committed to helping its customers with a wide spectrum of pharmacological services. This includes compounding – the very exact practice of blending medicines in precise ratios. You won’t ﬁnd this service at most comer pharmacies, and you won’t ﬁnd too many pharmacies that are PCAB accredited, as Richie’s Pharmacy is.

On behalf of the 2/2 Marines, “The Warlords,” Randy Au presents a certiﬁcate of appreciation to Richie Ray. Because of his generous support, the Marines made Richie an honorary Warlord. There is now an entire platoon of America’s ﬁnest young men that think of Richie as one of their brothers.
“To our nation’s veterans, thank you. Throughout the year, we support our nation’s veterans and service members at both the local and national level. Every day, veterans and active military men and women will find reserved parking at our restaurants. On Veterans Day, we’re honored to offer free meals to veterans and active military men and women across the country.”
All the more reason for loving Texas Roadhouse. For the past 9 years they have supported our troops by holding a fundraiser for Tip Of The Spear in conjunction with their Meat Cutting Competition. Texas Roadhouse has donated up to 1500 BBQ meals each October. The event quickly grew as word got out that there was good BBQ to be had for a donation to Tip Of The Spear. The event has grown to include purchasing meals for our local First Responders, also. Our generous community quickly recognized that purchasing a meal for a First Responder and supporting our troops is a winner, winner! Thank you to Joe Landy, Amanda Loucks and the Texas Roadhouse staff for volunteering their time and energy to make this a wonderful event!
Dan Ewing Memorial Golf Tournament
In May of 2019, The Dan Ewing Memorial Golf Tournament (DEM GT) celebrated its 27th Year of bringing the Right of Way Industry together, to raise funds for deserving, local 501(c)(3) Charities. Over the past 27 Years, the DEM GT has raised over $1 Million for numerous worthy causes, all while remembering those within the Industry whom have passed. As fellow Right of Way Professionals, their mission is to support those in need within the Gulf Coast area and give back to the Community that has afforded their Industry much opportunity .
We are extremely grateful to the Dan Ewing Memorial Golf Tournament committee (DEM) for choosing Tip Of The Spear as their sole beneficiary for their charity golf tournament 2 years in a row. The support of this tournament assisted Tip Of The Spear to expand our support of deployed military teams to double the coverage! We are grateful to the DEM golf committee for your dedicated hard work and to the sponsors for your generous contributions.
Valu Markets of Louisville, Kentucky jumped on board withus in 2009, and we haven’t forgotten about their kind donation. Valu Markets is an agile chain of superb grocery stores located in Louisville. They ﬁne-tune each of their locations to serve the needs of the community that surrounds them. They care about the people of Louisville, Kentucky, and it obvious they care about the Soldiers and Marines serving in Afghanistan, too. We wish we had a Valu Market near us, because we would take advantage of some of their great services- like on-line grocery shopping with delivery! How great is that?!
