Honor Flight Homecoming – You’re Invited!

     

Like to be a part of an Honor Flight Homecoming?

Join in this Sunday, November 3rd at 2pm for the Honor Flight Homecoming for our WWII Veterans.

Simply show up at the San Diego Airport, Terminal 2, Baggage Claim area 1-3. Patriotic clothing, American flags, welcome home signs, a smile in your heart, and a cheering voice are all needed! You will absolutely LOVE this event! ALL are welcome!!!

Ron and Teri Simas have owned a cabin on Palomar Mountain for the past decade and absolutely love their piece of heaven in the sky!

Girl Scouts have also been very much a part of their lives.  Both leaders, they help to coordinate events with Spirit of ’45, Wreaths Across America, Memorial and Veterans Day events, and of course, Honor Flight.

Nazare’, their oldest daughter, is a Girl Scout Gold Award Recipient.  She is seen at the beginning of this video and is interviewed towards the end. Naz also appears in this video at the 22 second mark.

Their youngest daughter, Lizzy, has just earned her Girl Scout Silver Award and is pictured with her Service Dog, Mallery.  Lizzy appears at the beginning of this video honorably escorting one of the Vets.

Hope some folks from the Palomar Mountain News can join in this Homecoming.  Thanks to the Simas family for helping coordinate these long-over-due times of recognition for our Vets.

News coverage from their October 20th event can be found here:
