Flights of Honor exhibit coming to Red Oak
The new Flights of Honor exhibit will arrive at in Red Oak Nov. 10-14 in the former Brown Shoe Fit store in the southeast corner of Fountain Square Park.
This exhibit, created by Patriotic Productions of Omaha, includes hundreds of photos from the Heartland Honor Flights that took 3,466 veterans from 386 Nebraska communities to Washington, D.C. during the years 2008-19.
The exhibit provides opportunities for veterans to re-live their experiences, and for family members, volunteers and patriots of all ages to reminisce and educate others about the importance of thanking and honoring our veterans. There is no admission fee, thanks to tour sponsors. The exhibit’s underwriting sponsor is Sandhills Global of Lincoln.
The exhibit includes nine separate double-sided frames with photos of the flights for our World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Female and Purple Heart Veterans of Iraq/Afghanistan.
For anyone concerned about COVID-19, this exhibit will have ample spacing between each of the frames to keep all those in attendance separated.
Patriotic Productions is a non-profit organization with a mission of honoring our military by offering opportunities for those who wish to do the same. Initially focused on our nation’s Fallen that called Nebraska home an emotional traveling memorial – “Remembering Our Fallen” – was created, that soon expanded to 15 state-specific memorials since launching in 2010, with a national memorial now the focus.
The mission also included taking our veterans to Washington, D.C. for their Flight of Honor.
