    I am proud to say that I was nominated and won the honor of Hometown Hero in my area this summer,as I served in CAP (3 years)…USAF 4 years… US Army Reserve (2 years) and volunteer to help our local Air Force Recruiters get new people to enlist and go with them to many events.
    I also volunteer in many charities at home. I love to help.
    I regifted a steel POW bracelet to Lt. Col. Walsh last summer at Atlantic City airshow.

      Hi Grace, our show serves guests that come up from the NYC metro area – it’s not a bad trip up! There are a lot of benefits to doing this show in a community like New Windsor. We hope you’ll come out to the show!
