Wounded Warriors in town with Fire Dept. for ND game

More Video...

Despite the rain and chilly temperature, motorcyclists and a van full of Wounded Warriors made their way to South Bend Central Fire Station Saturday morning.

The Wounded Warrior Project is committed to assisting and honoring veterans of this generation with both visible and invisible wounds from war.

The injured veterans are in town for the Notre Dame vs. USC football game, but before they actually take their seats in the stadium they're getting a heroes welcome around town.

Saturday's gameday experience started with a hearty breakfast at South Bend Central Fire Station, and includes a pregame tailgate, tickets to the football game and special seats of honor at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.

Motorcyclists and representatives from the New York, Chicago and Detroit Fire Departments, as well as local Indiana departments joined the Wounded Warriors for breakfast.

For Cpt. Ed Meyer of the South Bend Fire Dept., there is an undeniable connection between firefighters and military servicemen. He said they love having them in town and sharing this experience with them.
