This was a really cool shoot because my husband, Steve, helped me coordinate it! He works at Williamstown High School and thought of me and our Veterans Day episode when Honor Flight came to visit. The day consists of local veterans meeting for breakfast at the school, traveling to DC for lunch and to visit the monuments, and having dinner back at the school. I was even able to use footage from aspiring producers in their TV Club!
From my post on phl17.com:
Honor Flight of Southern New Jersey honors local veterans with an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington DC.
The day starts at Williamstown High School with complimentary breakfast, and the students surprise the veterans by decorating the entire school in red, white, and blue, and line the halls while waving flags as the veterans leave. Many veterans served in the Vietnam and Korean Wars, and did not feel welcomed when they returned. The students make sure the veterans feel welcomed and honored, and give them the respect and recognition they deserved.
