Honor Flight Southeast Florida and the City of Port St. Lucie invite citizens to a free video presentation on Saturday, July 14, that documents the trip of a group of veterans who recently ventured from City Hall to Washington, D.C. to see the World War II Memorial there.
Eighty-five World War II veterans from Port St. Lucie and their escorts arrived at City Hall on May 12 at 3:30 a.m. for coffee and a light breakfast, then boarded buses to Palm Beach International Airport. They were greeted by citizens and city staff members who came out to support the vets on the historic occasion.
On Saturday, a 30-minute video capturing the day’s highlights and important moments will be shown at 10 a.m. in the Community Center on Airoso Boulevard.
The video shows these “Greatest Generation” Americans during their flight, then follows them while they visit the World War II Memorial and other significant sites in the nation’s capital. It was created by Honor Flight volunteers with professional-level video skills.
Mayor JoAnn M. Faiella, City Council members and volunteers from Honor Flight worked together for several months to plan the trip and to raise funds needed to make it a reality. There is no charge to see the video.
The Community Center is located at 2195 S.E. Airoso Boulevard, across the street from City Hall.
