Mission:

The Huey took flight this Veterans Day for combat Veterans, some wounded during their time in Iraq, Afghanistan and Vietnam.   Dave Rajkovich brought most of these Veterans to this event so we put him on to fly with them!  Dave has done some wonderful things to support Veterans and we appreciate his work greatly.  This flight is piloted by Vietnam War Veteran pilots Mike Billow and Harry Kernahan, and the Crew Chief is Afghanistan Veteran Dean Penrod of the Army National Guard in Reno, NV.  To the pilots, passengers, and crew - Thank you all for your service and Welcome Home!
