Our first flight was on September 22, 2011.
We kicked the chocks at 0500 from American Legion Post 77 in Conyers, Georgia with a full escort to Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. We were lead with a police escort by Rockdale County Sherriff's Department, Newton County Sherriff's Department, and the Georgia Patriot Guard Riders. The veterans loaded the busses to the cheer of well-wishers and a fanfare of patriotic music played by members of the Rockdale County High School Band.
After visiting the World War II, Korea, and Viet Nam Memorials, the veterans were given a bus tour of Washington DC. After a 1 hour weather delay in D.C., the veterans and their Guardians finally returned back to Conyers about 2300 hrs.
Pictures coming soon!
