Eastern North Carolina’s community of wounded warriors and disabled veterans got the chance to spend the day out on the water fishing Thursday morning.

It was all part of New Bern’s Top Shelf Fishin’ Festival – a festival proven to be crucial for veterans in the area. For the fifth year in a row, veterans enjoyed food, fun, friendship and fishing.

NewsChannel 12’s Kate Hussey joined veterans and wounded warriors, casting her line along with them.
