SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The Wounded Warriors Family Support’s High Five Tour stopped in Scotch Plains on Monday, August 15.

This summer, Wounded Warriors Family Support hit the road for the 7th annual High Five Tour 2016. During the four-month tour, a 2016 Ford Shelby GT350 will travel more than 26,000 miles across the U.S., traveling to more than 100 cities and making stops in 48 states.
