Here’s your chance to ‘welcome home’ World War II veterans at the DC Soldiers’ Home! On Saturday, April 5 at 3:15 p.m. we will gather at the front gate at Upshur and Rock Creek Church Road, and on the Scott Building Promenade, to welcome veterans back from a trip to the World War II Memorial. The Marine Band will join the welcoming party. This should be a fun event for the whole family. With more World War II veterans passing away each day, how many more opportunities will we get to personally thank them? The event is sponsored by the Home and Honor Flight, an organization that transports veterans from around the country to the World War II Memorial.
