Military wounded warriors ride in parade from Southport


SOUTHPORT, NC (AP) -- Supporters of the military's Wounded Warriors group are organizing a welcome home parade along the North Carolina coast.

Kris Tourtellotte of Operation Welcome Home says Friday's event will include about 30 veterans who will ride specially adapted bikes.

The route follows about 38 miles from Southport to the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Calabash.

Supporters are encouraged to come out and welcome the veterans by 3:30 p.m. and to bring welcome signs.

For more information, contact Tourtellotte at the veteran's Resource Center in Little River at (843) 427-4568.
