Seneca's Own Honor Flight Hero
MGySgt. William S. Taylor (Bill Taylor), a Seneca Ma
rine Instructor recently had the honor of being involved with and participating in the Bluegrass Honor Flight. If you don't know of
Honor Flights, know that they are an extreme honor. The flights periodically take war veterans (WWII, Korean and Vietnam War) to Washington DC to tour the war monuments that are set in place for their service. They are honored for their service and then return home that night. When they return home to Louisville International Airport, there is a crowd filled with family members, friends, veterans and all types of military enthusiasts. The "Coming Home" veterans are welcomed as they come through the TSA checkpoint with flags, banners, balloons, applause, cheers, etc.
Seneca's own Top Taylor (from ROTC in the 1970's and 1980's) was able to participate in the Honor Flight in July. Alison Porter learned that he was participating and organized a welcoming party of many Seneca Alumni when he returned to Louisville. If you want to see some of the photos, click here.
