 Hopefully winter season is over and we all know what that means,
construction season starts. The little yellow cones start showing up
 everywhere along with road closed signs and big trucks are hauling
 the road away that you were planning on going someplace on .
So it might be best to double check before you set out.

 Colin Koeppen and Dick Stamm were given the opportunity and selected to participate
in the Nebraska Vietnam Veterans Flight on May 1, 2017 sponsored by Patriotic Productions.

They flew out of Omaha at approximately 4:00 a.m., arriving in Washington D.C. at approximately

7:00 a.m. welcomed by fire trucks shooting arches of water over the four planes loaded with

Nebraska Vietnam Veterans. They were further welcomed in Washington D.C. by a large group

of well-wishers including a band, singers and politicians.

While spending the day in Washington D.C. they visited the Washington Monument,
Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Wall and Vietnam Statue, Korean War Memorial,
World War II Memorial, Iwo Jima Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, the Tomb
of the Unknown Soldier, including the Changing of the Guard and the Laying of the Wreath.
After a very full day they headed back to Nebraska, landing in Lincoln that evening. 
They received a long overdue “Welcome Home” in Lincoln by an estimated 7000 well-wishers,
including the American Legion Riders of which Chapter C’s Richard Neuhaus was a participant.

It was a trip and an experience of a life time for which they are very grateful.
