DFW Welcome Home a Hero!

12 02 2007

What a GREAT Story.  A friend sent me a link with a ABC “Person of the Week” video and wouldn’t you know, it was already on YouTube….so it was easy to post.  This story talks about a man, named Burt Brady, who goes to the airport almost everyday of the year to Welcome Home and say Thank You to a Hero (Soldier, Sailor, Marine, Airman).

From the DFW Airport Website:

Every day, more than 100 soldiers come through DFW Airport on their way home for two weeks of much-anticipated rest and recuperation (R&R). Under the R&R program, American servicemen and women receive these brief vacations from tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. DFW Airport welcomes home these members of the armed forces as they return from duty. One R&R flight lands every day at DFW, and this warm welcome home starts their two weeks of R&R on a high note. DFW has assisted thousands of men and women since the R&R flights first started in November 2004.

Even if your travels plans do not including flying in the next couple months, don’t let that stop you from visiting your local airport to Welcome Home a Hero.  To get involved and for more information visit: http://www.dfwairport.com/heroes/index.html
