HOUSTONHundreds of people gathered at Bush Intercontinental Airport on Friday to welcome more than 200 wounded veterans to Houston.
The veterans, many of them in wheelchairs or on crutches, passed through a cordon of cheering civilians waving flags and yelling their thanks. Some people in the crowd stepped out to shake the veterans hands or hug them and welcome them to Texas.
"Awesome," said one of the veterans. "God bless Texas."
"In the morning theyre going to see 200 boats sitting on the water with volunteers that are opening their hearts to show these soldiers a really good time on the water," said volunteer Sherry Kocian.
The Warrior Weekend project has become an annual tradition organized by MoMsUSA and the Wounded Warrior Organization.

I long to welcome home our Division just in the last month deployed to Afghanistan. They have already lost three soldiers.
