FLY-IN FOR WOMEN VETERANS
Veteran women had a chance to experience flying in small aircraft, discuss aviation and enjoy a BBQ. Pilots Tom Davis, and Mike Grossman flew our Honored veteran women over Monmouth County and Rich Thomas, LZ 64 gave a tour of aircraft on the ground. Susie Guckin from Peaceful Warrior Meditation spoke to veterans about methods to limit PTSD. Grill master's John and Pete did a great job of serving home-made burgers. We appreciate all the support from Monmouth Jet Center and their ground crew in hosting another successful event.

The goal is to connect veterans to VA Service Offices/Outreach Centers, NJ Coastal Parks, Outdoor Clubs, Veteran Organizations, and help Veteran men and women take time to heal by utilizing eco-therapy activities with other veterans.
