On January 31, 2013, the Show Choirs of Rockbridge High School, Columbia, MO conducted a concert featuring WWII era songs, the proceeds of which were donated to Central Missouri Honor Flight. Many WWII veterans who have traveled with us attended as the choirs’ guests.
Last week, Satin and Lace, the senior Rockbridge choir, traveled to Nashville, TN and competed in the National Show Choir Championship and brought home First Place!
Central Missouri Honor Flight congratulates these talented young Americans and thanks them, on behalf of our WWII and Korean War veterans, for their support.
