July 4th Festivities

The summer sun has finally arrived with July 4 coming fast!! The 2017 Warrior Families will be arriving on September 5 -- just 65 days from July 4!!!!!!

Bethany Beach Parade -- Everyone look for us in the July 4th parade as we honor the Nation’s founding. Operation SEAs the Day will proudly participate with its WARRIOR float!! We continue to honor the many brave men and women who have and who continue to serve and sacrifice to preserve our independence.

Come early and get a good seat along the parade route. Join in on all the Bethany Beach celebration of our great Country. There will be contests and activities on the beach during the day leading up to the spectacular fireworks at dusk. FUN FOR ALL!!

Our Mission:
To organize and facilitate a beach week event for our wounded soldiers and their families as a means of showing our appreciation for their service and sacrifice. It is our hope that such a community-based gesture of support will be comforting and help ease their transition back into civilian life.
