Our Chapter ...

Over the last several years  our chapter has sponsored the arrival and ceremony honoring America's Huey 091, the Vietnam era UH-1 helicopter which now resides in the Smithsonian's American History Museum in Washington D.C.  A ceremony hosted by the Mayor Of Harrisburg Stephen Reed, and attended by the Governor and both Pennsylvania U.S. Senators, as well as many members of the Pennsylvania State Senate and House, greeted the arrival of the chopper.

We also hosted the Pennsylvania premier of the critically acclaimed made for TV documentary "In The Shadow Of The Blade" at the beautiful Whitaker Center in Harrisburg Pa. The event, for which a UH-1 Huey helicopter was placed on the street in front of the theater - thanks to the help of the Adjutant General of the Pennsylvania National Guard, Maj General Jessica Wright — drew hundreds that night.

It was our honor to provide the Grand Marshals for the largest Memorial Day Parade in Pennsylvania, the Annville Parade.  Every year our chapter participates in this event and will continue to work with this fine group.  In recent years we have created a new tradition of passing out thousands of small American flags along the way, in advance of the parade itself, something that the marchers have told us makes for a very inspiring sight as they pass by.
