A group of men and women who made us all proud spent the day Friday in Moncks Corner.
A large American flag was hung between two bucket trucks from Berkeley Electric Cooperative in front of Santee Cooper as a couple dozen warriors rode through on bicycles as part of a "warrior ride."
Some of the military veterans had sustained injuries while fighting for our country. Lael Ford works with Berkeley Electric. She said, ‘It's very important what they did for us."
Ellis Crawford is a foreman at Berkeley Electric. Those who serve in the military are close to his heart, "It means a lot to me. My grandfather fought in Vietnam. My father fought in desert storm. It means a lot."
Chants of "USA! USA!" could be heard later, as the warriors pulled into the parking area at Berkeley Middle School.
Christopher Simple is a wounded warrior who was wounded during the First Gulf War. He says they appreciate the warm welcome, "This is excellent. The ride is excellent."
The warriors also stopped by the Berkeley County Veterans Memorial for a service.
On Saturday morning, the group plans to ride over to Mepkin Abbey.
