Welcome the Wounded Warriors!

After the celebration of our Independence Day in July, many of the residents of Rockaway open their hearts and homes to a number of wounded warriors.  These men and women were severely wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan while fighting for us.  It is always a heart-wrenching experience for me to see these young men of 18yrs. old or 19 yrs. old or really at any age with amputations and other severe injuries.

On July 7th, a procession of wounded warriors were escorted by the New York City Police Department and the New York City Fire Department to enjoy a wonderful feast at the Belle Harbor Yacht Club and to meet their host family.  The residents of Rockaway lined the Boulevard with home made banners, flags, cheering and clapping thanking them for their services.   For the next few days their will be celebrations in honor of the warriors and there will be other events for them to enjoy.  They will be able to take the sun on the beautiful beach, go kayaking, sailing, waterskiing, scuba diving and fishing.

 They have sacrificed so much for us, no amount of thank you will ever be enough!
