Honoring the great accomplishments and sacrifices of the WWII veterans, Korean War Veterans and Vietnam Veterans.
Saturday, May 7th was an exciting and emotional day in Brunswick, Georgia for Veterans from Glynn, McIntosh, and Camden counties.
The Red Carpet was rolled out as Family and Friends Holding Signs, balloons and flags gathered in the terminal of the Glynco Airport in Brunswick, Georgia awaiting the arrival of the “HONOR Flight.”
The first person to greet the returning Veterans was Mayor Cornell Harvey and other elected officials. The Glynn County Airport Property Manager, Terra H. Winslett made it possible for the Florida and Georgia Star Newspapers to share in this momentous experience.
“Honor Flight Network” is a nonprofit organization created solely to honor America’s Veterans for all their sacrifices. The Honor Flight Network transports Veterans to Washington, DC, to visit national memorials that honor Veterans’ service. The veterans visited the World War II monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, the Tomb of the Unknown, and observed the Changing of the Guard.
