Greensboro, N.C. (theACC.com) -- The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) honors America by recognizing the men and women of the Armed Forces throughout the 2012 ACC Women's Basketball Tournament held March 1 through March 4, at the Greensboro Coliseum.

Members of The Wounded Warrior Project, from Fort Bragg will enjoy women's basketball tournament games as while they are celebrated for honorably protecting our country's national freedoms.

This marks the seventh year that the ACC and the Wounded Warrior Project have combined forces. In addition to being honored at the Women's Basketball Tournament, the Wounded Warrior Project has been a part of every ACC Football Championship Game. In addition, the ACC and Wounded Warrior Project teamed up for a ceremonial first pitch at the 2011 ACC Baseball Championship and were honored at the 2011 ACC Men's Tournament.

The Wounded Warrior Project is a non-profit organization whose mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors.
