Welcoming The Wounded Soldiers

Dear Editor,

The great endeavors on the part of many Rockaway residents to welcome the wounded soldiers show how wonderful the people of Rockaway are. At the Old Traditional Irish Shack of Beach 129 Street the welcome mat was out. The neighbors came to greet the soldiers with happiness and refreshments. One night they had a big party with singer and guitarist PJ. Everyone waited to honor their heroes.

The party at Mr. Mullen's shows how highly he is thought of. No finer person exists; he so willingly gives his time to help our war heroes. My Irish hat is off to Mr. Mullen and his team of helpers.

Any Rockaway resident who opened their homes and hearts to the wounded soldiers deserves happiness and every good fortune life has to offer. Rockaway is the finest community in the United States of America.
