FREE WARBIRD RIDES FOR VETS  

Veteran: any  person who has served in the active U.S. military and been subsequently discharged or released.

As the number of actual “WWII period” vets grows smaller, we want to take opportunity to recognize and salute those that participated in this greatest generation, and this "Herculean" effort to preserve freedom in America during that time.  It is our intent to offer free and unlimited general admission access to the ramp and grounds by any vet from this period, as well as any family members accompanying them.  Our intent is to offer free rides aboard a participating aircraft for those WWII vets that are pre-registered and confirmed. 

All Free Warbird rides for Vets Rides and associated media coverage will be scheduled in advance. 

REGISTRATION:

If you are a WWII vet, or the family of a vet, please contact Scott Glover directly at:

Scott@midamericapetfood.com  for registration,

If you are registering a veteran on their behalf, and could act as

A contact person for them, please include:

·         Name (Veteran)

·         Your Contact telephone number

·         Date of Birth of Veteran

·         Where this person was and what they did in WWII

The CAPTAIN and main point of contact for this special program for the 2013 gathering of Warbirds and Legends is Mr. Scott Glover of Mt. Pleasant, TX.

Scott owns an original D Day C-47 “Sky King” that had extensive involvement in numerous theatres of Europe during World War II.

Scott has given hundreds of free rides to vets all across America and has offered to coordinate this effort during the gathering using Sky King and several other aircraft.  Mr. Glover recently operated Sky King in San Antonio, Texas where he hosted the World War II glider pilots reunion and gave more than 140 rides to these American hero’s at his own expense.

Scott is assembling his team of pilots and aircraft that will give away these warbird rides during the gathering.  All prospective vets that would like a ride should pre-register for planning purposes.
