Palm Springs ~ Palm Springs Air Museum Memorial Day Flower Drop. This is a very special day at Palm Springs Air Museum and an event I’ve attuned myself. The brief Memorial service is dedicated to all of othe fallen soldiers, who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.To honor them the flight is the highlight of the service with a fly-by and flower drop of over 3,000 red and white carnations from a B-25 Mitchell. Visitors are welcome to pick up a flower to take home.
So what ever you decide to do this Memorial Day, as a proud American I’d encourage you to show your appreciation to all Veterans, many of whom have paid the ultimate price, while remembering those serving now and the families they leave behind.
