Rotary celebrated Armed Forces Week with a presentation by Joe Dean and Renee Riddle of the Stars & Stripes Honor Flight, an organization supported by the RCM Community Trust. Stars & Stripes Honor Flight flies WWII, Korean War and terminally ill veterans from other conflicts to Washington, DC to visit their memorials. The program included clips from the recent Honor Flight feature film, and closed with a performance by 2002 Miss Wisconsin Jayme Dawicki of her original song "Hero."
Please note that there were three film clips in this presentation - the first and third clips have been removed from the podcast as they contained little dialogue.
