Today, May 7, was the dedication ceremony for the Huey helicopter at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Holmdel and was a Day of Remembrance for all those who served. Below are some pictures, and if you look closely, you will see that there is a human model sitting behind the helicopter controls. There was a great line-up of speakers today and many dedicated volunteers to thank for all the work done to restore the helicopter and build the plaza around it, which we were told was a dirt field just last September. They revved the helicopter engine at one point to show that it is in fact a working helicopter, but, assuming the blades are working, they did not turn them on. That probably would have blown all the flags over, not to mention a whole lot else. All in all, a great day and a job very well done! Many thanks to all our veterans for their service.
