Veteran Events & Ceremony

2024 will be our 3rd year performing the "Flight of the Flags" at our event. During this somber ceremony, pre-registered families will bring the burial flags from their loved ones for one last flight. The student honor guard from Green HS JROTC will load the flags into a WWII TBM Avenger (same type that George Bush was shot down in WWII), while members of the Honor Guard conduct a 21 gun salute, a flag folding demonstration, and a description of the meaning of each part of a military funeral. The aircraft will circle over the airport during a moment of silence. After landing, each flag is reunited with their family and the pilot personally presents them with a certificate.

We are hoping to fly 40 flags each day!!!
