WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington tradition during Thanksgiving is not happening this year due to COVID-19.
Families in the Cape Fear volunteer to host a Marine or two on Thanksgiving day for a meal and other family traditions.
Schnitzler said this year the Marine Corps will not be sending Marines to the Cape Fear for Thanksgiving due to COVID-19.
Schnitzler said everyone understands why they cannot host the event this year, but he says they are excited to do again next year.
