Veterans' Honor Flight

in a Vietnam-era UH1-16 "Huey"

September 17, 2016 | Western Gateway Park, Penn Valley | 1:00 pm

To many Americans, both veterans and non-veterans, the sight and sound of the “Huey” helicopter is synonymous with the war in Vietnam. In collaboration with the Vietnam Helicopter Museum, Welcome Home Vets is excited to bring this iconic helicopter to Nevada County in conjunction with our annual Bike Run. As part of their mission, the Vietnam Helicopter Museum will offer an honor flight to up to five veterans in conjunction with this visit!
