GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- Three veterans groups team up to host wounded warriors. About 60 recent veterans from places like Fort Sill and Fort Hood arrived by vans tonight at the VFW post on the Preston peninsula.

They were treated to a round of applause when they came in the door. Tomorrow, 18 boats led by striper guides are set to take them fishing on Lake Texoma.

"They're Afghanistan and Iraq veterans that are coming in. They're going to be taking them fishing. We'll have hamburgers here tonight and tomorrow night we'll be at the American Legion and Sunday morning be at the Elks," says VFW #7873 post commander Jerry Hinton. "They enjoy it immensely. It's a time that they probably don't even get to fish anytime else and they come from all over the United States."

This is the fourth year for the Operation Welcome Home, and organizers say it keeps on growing.
