Public invited to welcome home Talons Out Honor Flight
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3 ) Saturday, you have a chance to honor World War II vets.
Talons Out Honor Flight is flying the veterans to Washington, D.C. for free so they can visit the World War II Memorial.
Organizers say this is a life-changing experience for these men and women who sacrificed so much.
"When they won the war they didn't have a big party, they kept working and came back to the states, back home, and went to work. So for us, giving them this honor, this last mission is really just an honor for us to give back to them," said organizer Dan Moyle.
When they return the public is invited to welcome them back in a big way. There will be a welcome home parade Saturday night at 8:00 at WMU's College of Health and Human Services off of Oakland Drive.
The public is invited to the parade and the party afterwards as well.
In all Talons Out hopes to send at least 25 local World War II vets to Washington D.C., all for free.
They rely on donations to get them there.
