The Cape Fear Chapter donated $1,200 to the Fort Bragg Chapter of the Military Order of the Purple Heart to sponsor two wounded warriors home for Christmas.
During a ceremony held in the Wounded Warrior Transition Battalion, Womack Army Medical Center, George Blanc, 2nd Vice President presented $600 checks to CW2 William Martin, IV and Staff Sergeant Warren R. Davies, III.
Both CWO Martin originally from South Carolina, and Sergeant Davies from North Carolina were wounded while involved in combat operations in Afghanistan.
Both Purple Heart recipients have over 20 years of military service and will soon be retired from active duty as a result of their wounds.
