Save the Date: Wounded Warrior Week

The Current of Downbeach - 8/23/2017

Plan to be along the parade route to welcome U.S. Army SFC Angeleek Courtney when she arrives for the Longport American Legion's sixth annual Wounded Warrior Week, a week-long vacation at the Jersey shore. Courtney will arrive Tuesday, Sept. 19 during a surprise motorcade/parade in her honor.

Downbeach residents are encouraged to make signs and wave flags anywhere along the parade route to give her a warm welcome to the Downbeach community. The motorcade will depart Ventnor Plaza Shopping Center at 5:30 p.m., travel slowly down Dorset Avenue, then south on Atlantic Avenue to Longport.
