More than 50 veterans received the opportunity on Saturday, July 25, to go up in a helicopter and see not another battlefield, but the familiar sites of Wabash.
Triple LLL Truck Repair hosted “Honoring Our Heroes,” its second event honoring past and present members of the U.S. armed forces. The local business teamed up with the Peru-based, non-profit organization American Huey 369 to bring two helicopters to the event.
Ryan Long, owner of Triple LLL Truck Repair, said he wanted to host the event to remind people to be grateful for the sacrifices service members make on behalf of their country.
