Pottsville, Schuylkill County-A Schuylkill County community offered its support a veteran battling serious illness this labor day weekend.
         Dozens of people turned out  Sunday in Pottsville for the "Rockin' for Our Own Wounded Vet".
       Yuengling Ice Cream sponsored the fundraiser  at Strikers Pub.  The day featured bowling, live music, a Chinese Auction and more.
         The proceeds will benefit Frederick Davis, a Schuylkill County marine who served in Iraq.
         He was diagnosed with a brain tumor that led to a stroke.  His sight, hearing and movement are impaired.
         Organizers say it's important to stand by those who have sacrificed so much for our country.
