Partner Resource Center
EAA and American Airlines would like to thank the courageous men and women who have served our country by offering a free veterans breakfast to kick off Friday's daylong Salute to Veterans festivities.
Vietnam-era pilot Neil Hansen will be the speaker at this year's breakfast. Hansen flew the C-123 Provider, C-47s, and many other large aircraft for Air America, the airline operated by the CIA. Pilots of this airline flew in hazardous conditions over southeast Asia in the years leading up to and during the war in Vietnam. Many of Hansen's exploits were the basis for the film Air America starring Mel Gibson and Robert Downey Jr.
Reserved for veterans only, the breakfast will be held at 8 a.m. in the Partner Resource Center, located on Waukau Avenue just west of the intersection at Knapp Street Road. Space is limited for the free breakfast; reservations are requirement.
