On the 70th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor, Veterans from the Lone Star Honor Flight were received by Montgomery High School students, faculty and staff for a ceremonial departure of their final ‘flight’ to the Admiral Nimitz Museum – The Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg, Texas.
Being invited to accompany Pearl Harbor and World War II Veterans from Montgomery County on this historical and memorable day was a great honor and one that I will never forget. With my video camera on hand, I was able to capture the entire day for the Veterans of the Lone Star Honor Flight.
This video is the 2nd Chapter of a 45 minute DVD Produced by ‘On Location Live’ that will soon be sold by the Lone Star Honor Flight. 100% of the proceeds will benefit their organization. Purchase and contact information will soon be posted.
