You’re invited to a party!
Sgt. Maj. Woody Wilson, 40, son of Jerry and Jean Wilson, Harrison, will spend about 10 days in his hometown as he awaits transfer to Fort Drum, N.Y.
Jerry Wilson, commander of the Harrison VFW, Campbell, Road, welcomes the public to say “hey” to their son, who was promoted recently by the Army to sergeant-major E9, senior NCO of a battalion.
There is no charge at the door of the Legion, where the celebration will take place Friday, Aug. 22, beginning at 7 p.m.
Woody has visited Harrison once since he was injured in a Jeep accident 2003, said his dad.
“We would like to have as many people who remember Woody, and have been asking a lot of questions of what he is doing,” said Wilson.
“There is no charge. We don’t want any gifts. We would just like to have friendships.”
Woody is a 23-year Army veteran. He has been stationed in Hawaii.
