Join Talons Out tomorrow at Wings Stadium for Honor Flight Day. An inspiring, free event for the entire family. Talons Out is the local chapter of the Honor Flight Network.
See the documentary that inspired this incredible program for our nations heroes ..from the GREATEST GENERATION....our WWII Veterans. And, see the heroes as they return from their 'honor flight'.
Honor Flight is an all expense paid trip to Washington D.C. for our WWII Veterans to visit the memorials there built in their honor. For many this will be the last trip they will ever make.
The movie starts at 6...then evening will also include entertainment, sign making and a grand homecoming.
The heroes will arrive approximately 8:45.
Last August, we had the opportunity to interview highly decorated WWII Veteran Mr. Chester Wernecke prior to his flight to Washington D.C. He's pictured with his wife Alice. You can hear the interview by clicking on the audio file. See Mr. Wernecke's memories from his 'honor flight' last fall. His grandson Patrick joined him and can be seen below.
Mr. Wernecke and his grandson stand in front of the Field Of Stars. This honors the 400,000 live lost during the war.
Mr. Larry Harris, 'GRAMPS' is going on the flight tomorrow. I met him on Veterans Day. Thank you all for your service!!
