World War II Veteran Visits Saddlewood Fourth Graders

Fourth graders at Saddlewood Elementary School got a surprise visit today from a very special World War II veteran George Allen.

Mr. Allen came to thank students for the beautiful cards, banners and well-wishes they recently sent with him as he was an honored veteran aboard the most recent "Patriot Flight" out of Albany International Airport. Patriot Flight is a regional hub of The Honor flight program whose mission is to
"transport America’s veterans to Washington, DC to visit those memorials dedicated to honor the service and sacrifices of themselves and their friends."

Mr. Allen was beaming with pride as he shared stories of his service in the Army (1942-44). Each 10-​year old beamed with pride when they shook hands and thanked him for his service as our country prepares to celebration Veterans Day tomorrow.
