The chapter partnered with Barnes Insurance Group of Columbia July 2 to provide canteen service at the reception for WWll veterans returning from their Honor Flight.
“This was a great opportunity to welcome home war heroes who kept our country free,” said Dave Griffith, chapter executive director. “The Red Cross has a proud history of serving the military and this is just another way we can continue to honor and serve those who made this country great.”
The chapter had an emergency response vehicle (ERV) at the Courtyard Marriott in Columbia. Barnes provided snacks and drinks.
Chapter volunteers and staff were on hand to welcome home the heroes.
