Honor Flight welcomed home

Denver, IA

It was the end of a long and tiring day for 96 veterans and their escorts, but every one of them remained excited and impressed with the Honor Flight trip to Washington in June.
Denver, Iowa, Post Chaplain and Post Commander Robert Schmitz welcomed Shorty Diercks and Herman Emkes back home.
The veterans all expressed their appreciation for the memories made during the trip, but most of them had to admit that the overwhelming welcome-home by nearly a thousand flag-waving, poster-bearing, proud and appreciative friends and families was the most memorable.
