KT Budde-Jones submitted this photo and note: “The historic B-25 Mitchell, “Old Glory,” being lifted on board the USS Essex for transport to San Diego from New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Old Glory will take part in The Legacy of Peace Aerial Parade at Hawaii’s Pearl Harbor, just one of many events commemorating the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II.”
“Through a collaborative effort between David Prescott, a Navy veteran and founder of the Prescott Foundation, and Vinny Roman, the Albany, N.Y., Toys for Tots coordinator, the plane carried 30 pallets of toys for children in the Hawaiian Islands.”
