Tanque Verde High School students from the National Honor Society and the AP World History classes participated in the Honor Flight Welcome Home event on the evening of Monday, October 29th. Honor Flight is a national non-profit that flies WWII, Korea, and Vietnam veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit their war memorials and spend time with fellow veterans.
Forty five (45) TVHS students went with history teachers Ms. Lori Gahr and Mr. Jeremy Samoy, to the airport on Monday to welcome the veterans home from their trip, and to spend some time talking with them and thanking them for their service. Ms. Gahr noted, "It was an amazing event. Both the students and the veterans seemed truly moved by the experience. We are hoping to do it again next year!"
