Wounded Warriors Take Rockaway By Storm



The Wounded Warriors came to Rockaway on Thursday, July 7, taking the west end community by storm. Fifty strong and many with their families, the warriors paraded down Rockaway Beach Boulevard Thursday afternoon to the cheers of hundreds of local residents who came out to welcome them. After the parade, they met their local hosts at a dinner at the Belle Harbor Yacht Club. The weekend also included a fishing trip, a fundraiser in the rain, an evening cruise, and two days of adaptive water sports. For more pictures, see pages 62 to 64.
