Honor Flight Welcome Home


     On Saturday, April 30, 2022, the Knights of Columbus San Marco Assembly #2514 participated in a Welcome Home event at the Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) in Fort Myers, FL at 9:00 pm. The Sir Knights joined a huge crowd at the airport terminal in welcoming back the veterans who were returning from an Honor Flight to Washington, DC.  Assembly #2514 Sir Knights John Basic, Joseph Batte, Jerry Hautman, and Dan Moll were among more than eighty (80) veterans who took part in the Honor Flight.  Assembly #2514 Sir Knights John Caltabiano and Joe Granda served as guardians on this Honor Flight. The trip included a tour of the war memorials in Washington, DC.
