Wounded Warriors coming to Huntsville

By Jack Madison jmadison@waff.com

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Several veterans injured while serving will arrive in Huntsville Tuesday.

They are called "Wounded Warriors." The Semper Fi Community Task Force organizes the chance for people to thank those who defended America.

Member Jim Whittkom said, ""Those guys don't ask anything. They just want to live with their brothers. And these men and women go out and do that job. That's why we pat them on the back and say thanks. Because it's really important."

People can greet the Wounded Warriors at Huntsville International Airport when they arrive at 12:20 Tuesday afternoon. They will arrive at The Westin at 1:00 o'clock.
