Entertaining the POW's
On May 21, 1998 I had an experience of a lifetime. A friend of mine was contacted by Ross Perot and asked if a few Powered Parachutes could fly over his ranch for an event that was scheduled. The answer was a resounding yes and a call went out to a few of us to go along. It turned out that the event was a dinner to be held at the Circle T ranch owned by the Perot's for the 25th reunion of the Vietnam War Prisoners of War.
We were to fly over the buses full of POWs and their families as they entered the
ranch. We weren't the only special welcome the Veterans were to receive. Some of the
highlights of the event were:
Our host even took an introductory lesson from one of the pilots. I've included some pictures of the experience for you to see.
