As the Squadron has once again deployed I think it is fitting to put this small tribute to our Armed Forces on our website. The original photos and quotes were sent to me from another veteran, I rearranged them into a PowerPoint presentation and added the music.  When the program starts hit open it will take a few seconds to download the presentation once it opens on the bar above it you will see slide show, hit that and start the slide show. To exit the presentation simply hit the esc button. I hope you will enjoy this tribute as much as I did creating it.
