A cold day in October at Monroe County Airport was the setting for the Salute to Veterans Weekend Event. It’s purpose to both honor and recognize the efforts and sacrifices made by our servicemen and women from conflicts past and present.
An overwhelming attendance at this occasion included 31 World War 2 veterans as well as many others with military careers leading up to present day.
The event also had another guest in the form of a B-17 Flying Fortress, the ‘Aluminum Overcast’ – a legendary aircraft and a fitting tribute to our brave armed forces.
