A group of disabled veterans pose for a photograph April 3 at the Reno, Nevada, airport after arriving from Dallas-Fort Worth. The group was going on a ski trip after completing a rigorous nine-week program through the Adaptive Training Foundation.
The pilot on the flight was Tim Schmidt, who lives in Elkhorn. Schmidt said flying the veterans was one of the greatest honors of his career.
"I know my entire flight crew was emotionally touched by the experience," Schmidt said. "Seeing firsthand the incredible attitude demonstrated by all our vets will be a memory that will last a lifetime."
