Each trip to Washington features a “mail call,” where veterans receive messages of gratitude from children and adults. Students who cannot yet write are encouraged to draw pictures. Pupils should sign their correspondence using first names only. Notes and drawings can be sent to Lisa Reschke at Cherrington Elementary School, which is located at 522 Cherrington Road inWesterville. To be included in the September flight, letters must be received by no later than September 9.

The public is also invited to welcome home the returning veterans on the evening of September 19 at Port Columbus International Airport. Participants are being asked to gather in the Southwest baggage claim area around 8:45 p.m.
