I would like to share part of an email that I ws honored to recieve from Diane Mc Donald. Diane and her husband Drew are two terrific people who head up Old Glory Honor Flight. Old Glory Honor Flight flies WW II veterans to Washington D.C. to tour the WW II Memeorial, Arlington and other great memorials. It's a free trip for the veterans.
In June they flew Pearl Harbor survivors to see Pearl again and it was a very emotional.
Please check a part of Daine's email to me and check out the video. I hope you can join us December 2nd:
Return to Pearl. The first and only public viewing of RTP is Sunday, December 2nd at 6:00pm at the Grand Opera House in Oshkosh. I am hoping you can help us get the word out about this event.
Return to Pearl is a documentary of the honor flight we took to Oahu in June. As you recall, we took the Pearl Harbor Survivors from all across the state, on a 4 day journey back to Pearl Harbor. We only have approximately Pearl Harbor 38 survivors living in WI and we were lucky to take 19 with us on this historic trip. These guys shared their experiences; the bullets, bombs, and utter chaos they experienced. They talked about the friends they lost and what this trip meant to them. Their stories are compelling and I know folks are going to enjoy it. The documentary is 70 minutes long. The best part is 16 of the survivors will be there at the Grand Opera House! Living history right in our front yards!
