February was a special month for us at BConnected. We had the absolutely incredible opportunity to film five videos for Old Glory Honor Flight, highlighting a few veterans from the Vietnam War and being able to tell their story. Old Glory Honor Flight is dedicated to transporting our local WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam War veterans to Washington, D.C. to see the memorials built in their honor. This year, they decided to do something a little bit different.
Old Glory Honor Flight has conducted a once-in-a-lifetime Honor Flight to Vietnam. The flight, with 53 Vietnam veterans, departed from Menasha, Wisconsin on Sunday, February 24th, and returned on March 9th. The veterans toured the country, at no cost, for two weeks, seeing sites of military significance from Saigon to Hanoi along with traditional tourist attractions.
BConnected is honored to have been a part of this special opportunity, which is why our videos for Old Glory Honor flight are the clear choice for our best client work for February. Team members Abbey Spierings, Sam Fellner, Vanessa Cebulski, Brandon Bjorkman, and Shawn Williams worked on all of the behind the scenes of these videos, setting up the filming gear, lights, and audio, filming the interviews, and editing all of the recorded and gathered footage to create the five videos. Thank you so much to Jenny Vanden Heuvel and Dave Razor Design for all of their amazing help in putting this story together!
Our whole team at BConnected has been honored to work with Old Glory Honor Flight, and we want to say a HUGE thank you to all of the veterans that have just returned home from Vietnam with Old Glory. We had an awesome time giving you the welcome home you may have never received. Thank you!
