Branson Airport was honored to assist five of our Wounded Warriors flying back home
to Tampa on Sunday after attending a golf tournament for Veterans. TSO Biggs and
TSO Douglas who are part of the PSS team met the men at curbside and assisted with
check in and the screening process. They are part of the AVAST (Amputee Veterans
of America Support Team) and Honor Guard. They have presented the colors at the Republican
Convention, a Buccaneers’ football game and a Rays’ baseball game. Three of the veterans
were from the Vietnam War and the other two were from the Afghanistan War. Before
boarding, the men received a standing applause from all in the waiting area.
