Blessed Francis Seelos Academy Students Welcome Home Veterans 

        A group of Blessed Francis Seelos Academy students, families and teachers participated in Honor Flight Pittsburgh on April 27.  Honor Flight Pittsburgh recognizes American War Veterans for their sacrifices and achievements.  They transport vets via deluxe motor coach to Washington, D.C., to visit memorials dedicated to their service and sacrifices.  

     The Seelos community participated in the veterans’ “welcome home” from their trip.  Many of these veterans did not have a “heroes” welcome when they returned from their service, so the community provided them with a welcome home that they deserved Students made signs and waved flagged as the veterans disembarked from their bus onto a red carpet.  The trip consisted of two busses and included veterans from many different branches of services and WWII vets.
