America Supports You Texas

Amarillo, TX - Veterans as well as military supporters from all over Amarillo came to help 'America Supports You Texas' annual Memorial Day fundraiser.

The Panhandle Military Support Group needs to raise $200,000 this year to fund the yearly honor flight.

This year the group is planning to send two full airplanes of World War II Veterans from our area to Washington D.C. in October.

The goal is to allow every WWII Veteran in the Panhandle a chance to see their memorial at some point in their life.

"Our sense of urgency is simply, we got to do this now. That's why we're flying two flights this year. We want to get as many World War II Veterans to Washington D.C. as we can."

America Supports You Texas cooked more than 700 hamburgers Saturday, and will continue holding events like this throughout the summer.

The honor flight takes off in October.
