Bethany Village Veterans Take a Heartfelt Journey on Honor Flight Dayton

On April 20, 2024, a group of 13 esteemed veterans from our Bethany Village community embarked on an unforgettable journey as part of Honor Flight Dayton. This mission, dedicated to taking veterans who served from WWII through the Vietnam Era to visit their memorials, offered a poignant and heartfelt experience for those who served our country with valor.

The trip, originally planned for last September, presented a profound opportunity for these veterans to connect with their past and reflect on their service. Visiting the memorials dedicated to their sacrifices made for many memorable moments…take a look below.

Upon their return, Bethany Village Independent Living Life Enrichment staff hosted a Welcome Home reception to celebrate the incredible journey they took alongside the group of veterans:

  • Tom Angotti
  • Teb Baines
  • Gary Baker
  • Dennis Barber
  • Fred Berta
  • Tom Broadwell
  • Lew Hann
  • John Linville
  • JD Livesay
  • Jerry Swain
  • Donald Weckstein

“We are immensely proud of our veterans and their service to our country,” said Leigh O’Brien, Life Enrichment Coordinator. “Seeing them have this opportunity to visit the memorials and be celebrated for their sacrifices is truly heartwarming.”

We are honored to have such remarkable people living in community at Bethany Village. Their courage, strength, and dedication continue to inspire us all.
