Operation Seas the Day Brings Wounded Warriors to Bethany Beach

Posted: Updated:

BETHANY BEACH, Del. - Operation Seas the Day has brought wounded war heroes and their families to Bethany Beach for a relaxing vacation for seven years now. The veterans began arriving for Warrior Beach Week on Tuesday.

"We try to show them the best of the Bethany Beach area," says Media Chair Annette Reeping. "They come in for a welcome session. Then they can go boating if they would like to go boating, fishing, golfing, tennis, all the amenities that we have here."

Greg Gerard, who has been coming for three years now, said Warrior Beach Week is extra special for his family.

"My wife actually became my wife last year," he explains. "Operation Seas the Day put on a magnificent wedding for us."

Despite Dorian moving up the coast, many events planned for Warrior Beach Week are still on. The families were supposed to see a show at the Freeman Stage, but that was canceled. The boating excursions have been moved to Saturday.

Friday night there will still be a motorcade parade to welcome all of the heroes home. Buses carrying warrior families will leave Sea Colony Marketplace at 4:45 p.m. and arrive at Bayside between 5 and 5:15 p.m. The dinner following that event has been moved inside.
