433rd Airlift Wing supports Veterans Day at Briscoe Middle School

By Minnie Jones 433rd Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Members of the 433rd Airlift Wing joined service members from other military services and from several Air Force Junior ROTC squadrons to support multiple Veterans Day events held throughout the day at Dolph Briscoe Middle School Nov. 11.

In addition to volunteers, there were veterans in the audience representing wars from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and Enduring Freedom.

“Getting a chance to expose kids to the vast opportunities within the military, not only helps inspire them in their career choices, but it's a unique opportunity to remind them of the importance of serving their nation,” said Maj. Matthew Menendez, a pilot with the 68th Airlift Squadron at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland.

The occasion was to volunteer at two schools from the Northside Independent School district during their Veterans Day ceremony for Veterans Appreciation Day. The event was to give students at the school some insight into the several jobs military members perform in the Air Force. The event marks the 10th year the NISD has hosted this type of event at their campus.
