Warriors Sample Summer Fun Rockaway-Style
The Wounded Warriors, members of the U.S. Armed Forces who were severely injured in Iraq and Afghanistan, visited Rockaway last weekend for a taste of Rockaway living. The festivities included a welcome by the FDNY, NYPD and Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, a trip on the Atlantic luxury yacht and a fireboat water display at the Statue of Liberty, lunch at the New York Stock Exchange, use of the Rockaway Point Yacht Club, fishing and water skiing on Jamaica Bay and a parade to Breezy Point, where they viewed the community’s September 11 memorial. The Warriors were also the special guests at a fundraiser hosted by Rita and Flip Mullen. The visit was sponsored by the Graybeards and others.
