Comments: Forty Vietnam Veterans from Peoria Catholic High Schools are going on an Honor Flight this October to honor their 10 classmates who were killed and are on the Vietnam wall. The group (Ten on the Wall) is supporting the Honor Flight by raising money. This event is a Family Fun Fest: pork chop dinners, kids activities, soccer games, and more. We have raised over $15K towards our $30K goal, and hope this event adds even more! We've seen kids respond with such excitement to your group!

We got a nice message this morning from the event's host, care of 501st member Adriane B.
Thanks to your team members who persevered the heat for a wonderful event! WE got great comments on your appearance and participation. Despite the heat, it was a wonderful experience for our attendees. You were so great to work with! I hope we have the chance to do it again (only on a much cooler day! :) )

Thank you!
Sandy A.

Going through reports for Charity hours and charitable funds, so should this be 10 Troopers since there were 3 troopers at the top and then another 7 listed?
