The Gary Sinise Foundation and American Airlines flew about 45 World War II veterans from Los Angeles to New Orleans for a visit to the National WW II Museum, July 26 and 27, 2017.
For those who may not know, Gary Sinise is an actor, musician, and active supporter of both veterans and serving troops.
Here’s the video story of the vets' journey – including a serenade by USO volunteers.
After a spirited welcome at the airport, the vets were bused to the Sheraton New Orleans for another welcome event. At the end of the video, you’ll want to say “Wow!” – if you aren’t too choked up to speak.
