Webster Warthogs welcome vets

23 Oct


Here’s a great little bit of news about some of the fine young people in our community.

The ​Webster Warthogs 14U​​​​ ​baseball team was ​​at the Rochester Airport ​Sunday afternoon to ​​help welcome 47 veterans home.​ ​The vets arrived​ at the airport ​following their Honor Flight trip to Washington D.C. ​where they spent time visiting the memorials​. ​

The team ​greeted them with handshakes and thank yous, along with personalized letters written to each ​individual ​veteran​ thanking them for ​their service to our country.

From cheering and clapping to handmade signs, these deserving servicemen received a true hero’s welcome from the whole crowd​.​​ It was very inspirational for everyone involved.

Thanks to Melissa Bolton for sending this nice piece my way, and to Renee Romano for the great photos.
