Children Of Soldiers Killed Overseas To Be Honored

The Fayetteville Area visitors bureau and a local volunteer group is teaming up with Hasbro to provide GI Joe action figures to children of fallen soldiers.

The Army's Army, a Fayetteville volunteer organization dedicated to supporting military families, will hand out the action figures during Fort Bragg's Independence Day celebration at Fort Bragg's Main Post Parade Field.

The organization says the gifts are a small gesture of support and appreciation to the children of fallen heroes from our community.

Fort Bragg's Fourth of July festivities expect to attract more than 50,000 people.
