Home / Band News / Simply Humbled…



On Wednesday, 26 October 2011 members of Wake and District had the distinct privilege to be part of the welcome home ceremony at RDU International Airport for what is likely the last Triangle Flight of Honor for some time…. Scores of proud Americans welcomed home our WWII veterans who traveled to Washington D.C. today to see the memorial in their honor and to see numerous military tributes.

We are thankful for all our Nation’s Veterans. Band member – Dr. Sam Baer – had the opportunity to be an escort on the trip today and we are thankful to Sam for being a part of the flight and like many of our members – a retired member of our Nation’s Armed Services.

To our friends at the USO of North Carolina and the Triangle Flight of Honor Network – thank you for allowing us to share our music with you and our Veterans. We’re simply humbled to be a small part of the great things you are doing.

To the members of the District who participated – THANK YOU and JOB WELL DONE >> band, stand easy.
