Our chapter meeting will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2013 at 11am at Buster’s on the Lake, our usual spot (8320 N. Hayden Road, 100, Scottsdale, AZ 85258).
Our Special Program
“Honor Flight Arizona” for WWII Veterans.
Presented by Nancy Page
This is where WWII Veterans are taken back to Washington, DC to their Memorial. It is a very emotional time for them, as these Veterans never believed they would have a memorial to honor the service they gave our country. In fact, these WWII Veterans really did not speak about their services, came home and carried on with life. They felt it was their duty to their country. This Memorial is truly a beautiful place to visit.
Again, this meeting is open to any husbands or friends who would like to hear Nancy Page speak about the experience she has had flying with these very cherished Veterans. They are taken from Arizona to Washington and back without spending a dime. Everything is covered by Honor Flight Arizona. This story will tug at your heart to think that these men fought in WWII, came home, had a life and now, at this beautiful age, get to see what has been built in their honor.
If you have any memorabilia from family members in WWII or other wars you would like to share, please bring it as there will be a table to display.
Daughters, Can You Spare a Can
