Each year, in November, The Semper Fi Community Task Force of North Alabama (SFCTF) does an incredible thing for those who have served and been injured in service of our country.
These American heroes were in hospitals, recovering from injuries received in the line of duty while their units completed the deployment and returned to a heroes’ welcome, meaning they often returned home in silence, with no recognition.
Heroes Week gives our community the chance to show our deep appreciation and recognition of these service members, their spouses, and caregivers.
They come from all across America and, before they begin a full week of visits, laughs, fishing and incredible experiences, they arrive at Huntsville International Airport.
This year, one of the Semper Fi Riders: Justin "Manaconda" White, put together a beautiful video of what happens at that reception. Check it out, enjoy the song and, if you would, say a thank you today to our Veterans today.
