Flag-Waving Locals Welcome Servicemen


Hundreds Hundreds Hundreds of Rockaway residents lined Rockaway Beach Boulevard on Thursday,

July 7, waiting for the Wounded Warriors to parade through the boulevard on their way from Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D.C. to dinner at the Belle Harbor Yacht Club, where the 50 disabled veterans and their families met their hosts for the long weekend. The remainder of the weekend was spent in cruises, fishing, a fundraiser with the Special Olympians and adaptive water sports at Breezy Point.
