|American spirit brought to life in Perkins County|
The Avi8ors entertained a crowd of nearly 300 for over an hour Sunday afternoon at the Grant Municipal Airport. The open house event honored all area veterans, Master Pilot Leon Kumor, and provided Young Eagles plane rides.
Some of the veterans standing when the song from their particular branch of the service was performed by The Avi8ors are (l-r): Burle Newth, Gerald Werner, Vern Mailand, Clayton Sparks, Elmer Pankonin and Ken Terwilliger. More photos appear on the Back Page. (Photos by Jan Rahn)
