Kids' Signs Say, 'Welcome Wounded Warriors!'
Local children Michael (left), Kevin (background) and Aidan help paint signs to welcome The Wounded Warriors, a group of about 35 soldiers severely injured in Iraq or Afghanistan, who are visiting Rockaway for a long weekend of water-sport activities. Organizers have previously asked that residents display their American flags and yellow ribbons to show support. See "It's What's Happening" on pages 34 and 36 for more details on their visit.
