Leaving Weigh Station
“Ride of Pride” Biddeford Exit
IASAR Huey Joins the ride
Slide one: Biddeford Fire Department honored the group as it passed. Slide two: Main Street Saco had many displaying their American Flags Slide three: Old Orchard Beach Town Hall in sight. No one outside, they were part of the “Freedom Ride”. Thank you Old Orchard Beach.
Top Sky Eagle blessed the landing area for a safe landing of the Huey and crew. While he was doing the blessing, an Eagle made an appearance. This was something you had to see to believe for many. The Huey landed shortly after the blessing.
At the end of the “Freedom Ride”, many went to see the IASAR Huey. Thank you Charlie Walker and crew from “Indiana Air Search A Rescue” bringing us some of our history back to Maine for us to see from Indiana. This Huey served in the Maine National Guard as well as Vietnam.

Every Branch of the Armed Services had a flag. Until they ALL come home.
As each fold of the flag is carefully done, we learn the meaning of each fold. The history of the American Flag is given as well as the meaning of each fold.
