Salute to Veterans Cap Giveaway
By Kelly Nelson, EAA Executive Editor
July 26, 2018 - U.S. military veterans and active duty military personnel are invited to pick up a free Salute to Veterans cap today courtesy of U.S. Venture, Finnegan Aviation Services, and Barbara Telling and Fred Telling, EAA Lifetime 519586. The hats will be available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Warbirds Volunteer Building, just north of the orange wayfinding tower while supplies last.
“The cap giveaway is a visible and long overdue thank-you to our veterans,” said Ed Finnegan, EAA 497396 of Finnegan Aviation Services. “[This is] a small token to show our appreciation and respect to our veterans for the sacrifices they made and continue to make for our freedoms.”
The caps are just one part of Friday’s Salute to Veterans at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018, which kicks off with the Veteran’s Breakfast at 8 a.m. (tickets required). A special Warbirds in Review session takes place at 1 p.m. in Warbird Alley, and the Veterans Parade kicks off at 1:30 p.m.
Friday evening, EAA will welcome home the Old Glory Honor Flight at 6:15 p.m., with approximately 125 Vietnam veterans returning to Oshkosh after a daylong trip to Washington, D.C.
