The Southern Berks News - - FRONT PAGE -

Daniel Boone School Dis­trict held its 2nd Wheelchair Brigade this year at the World War II Air Show on June 2.

Last year, 17 cadets from the JROTC at Daniel Boone High School, un­der the su­per­vi­sion of Shan­non Helzer and James An­gle, es­corted 12 veter­ans. This year, Daniel Boone’s cadets were joined by the cadets from Owen J. Roberts, un­der the su­per­vi­sion of Gun­nery Sgt. An­drew Wor­ley. To­gether, there were 39 cadets es­cort­ing 31 veter­ans from the Coatesville VA, Key­stone Villa, and Coun­try Meadows.

Dane Miller, prin­ci­pal of Amity El­e­men­tary Cen­ter, said “The best mo­ment among many was, im­me­di­ately be­fore the pic­ture of the vets in their wheel­chairs on the run­way, the crowd had parted when our group was passing by and spon­ta­neously ap­plauded the veter­ans.”
