Veterans hurt while serving overseas received a warm welcome home during a ceremony Wednesday.

The Armed Forces Foundation teamed up with The Palazzo to surprise the veterans and their families with a trip to Las Vegas. The wounded warriors came from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

“You can only imagine the kind of hardships they are going through. Not only are they coming back from a war, but they are coming back with injuries, and they adjusted,” Air Force Captain Charlie Spaulding, who was there to welcome the veterans, said.

The veterans at Wednesday’s ceremony said they also received a special welcome Tuesday night. They say the support is always appreciated.

“I love seeing the support. It helps us motivate ourselves and to succeed through our injuries,” Sergeant Greg Caron, who was injured in Afghanistan, said.

The Palazzo is hosting a hiring fair Thursday to connect veterans and their spouses with work opportunities. The fair is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Lido Ballroom.
