With a welcome at the airport fit for heroes, recovering wounded soldiers arrived on the Vineyard Monday afternoon for a stay and to participate in the annual Saltwater Heroes Challenge. The soldiers and their families will compete in the Martha’s Vineyard Stripped Bass and Bluefish Derby this week. The challenge is hosted by the Nixon family, who own the Beach Plum Inn, Menemsha Inn and Home Port restaurant in Chilmark.
