Martin County Fire Rescue Welcomes Home First Responders After Hurricane Michael Relief Mission
Stuart -Martin County welcomed home the first of two teams assisting with Hurricane Michael relief efforts. This two-member team is part of Ambulance Strike Team 502, which deployed on October 10 with crews from Osceola, Kissimmee, Apopka, St. Cloud, Ocoee, Seminole, Sanford and New Smyrna fire departments.
“We’re proud to take part in providing lifesaving efforts to residents and visitors in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael,” said Chief Bill Schobel. Florida put together a massive relief effort, with multiple ambulance and engine strike teams, including more than 140 fire rescue responders from the Central Florida region. It is believed to be the largest fire rescue deployment since Hurricane Andrew in 1992.
The team returning home today worked in some of Florida’s hardest hit areas by Hurricane Michael, including Mexico Beach, supporting hospital evacuations and transports, and providing critical medical services in the community.
Residents are encouraged to follow Martin County Fire Rescue on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MartinCountyFireRescue and Twitter @MartinCountygov.

HISTORIC OCTOBER 13TH HONOR FLIGHT TO PAY TRIBUTE TO 82 LOCAL VETERANS FROM WWII, KOREAN & VIETNAM WARS
Stuart, FL – Southeast Florida Honor Flight’s fourth and final flight of the 2018 season will be a historic one, honoring veterans from three different wars, with the long-awaited addition of Vietnam War veterans. As numbers of WWII and Korean War veterans wane and are being located, the next veterans in line, the Vietnam War veterans, will also be honored for the first time on the one-day trip to Washington, DC with the Stuart-based organization. As of today’s writing, there are 82 total veterans scheduled to be honored on the October 13th Honor Flight—14 from WWII, 41 from the Korean War and 27 from the Vietnam War.
“The mission of our many volunteers is to honor our war veterans with a trip of celebration and reflection to visit their memorials at no cost to them,” said Todd Tucker, Southeast Florida Honor Flight Chairman. “Since 2008, we have taken just over 2,650 WWII and Korean War veterans and feel proud and privileged that we can now also honor our Vietnam War veterans, who we all know never received a welcome or gratitude, in fact much more of the opposite.”
The day that many veterans say is one of the best days of their lives begins early with a 4:30AM check-in of veterans, their guardians and Honor Flight staff at Palm Beach International Airport. The chartered American Airlines Airbus 321 flies into DCA where the group will board four police-escorted motor coaches. The day’s agenda includes visits to the Air Force Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery for the Changing of the Guard Ceremony, the World War II Memorial, the Korean War Memorial and the Vietnam War Memorial. Every Honor Flight is designed to fly local veterans to Washington, DC to visit and reflect at the memorials built to honor their service and sacrifices.
The October 13th trip is made up of veterans who served in these military branches: Army (40), Navy (19), Air Force (19) and Marine Corps (4). Just a few of the wartime positions represented are A-4 pilot, infantryman, medical laboratory technician, company clerk, truck driver, aviation mechanic, air police, intelligence operations specialist, B-36 electrician, deckhand, radio operator, radar repairman, F-4 air crew chief, presidential honor guard, air traffic controller, boatswain’s mate, navigator and motor pool mechanic. Veterans on this trip served wherever ordered, whether that was stateside or in combat in battles around the globe, including: Battle of Iwo Jima (there are two veterans who fought in this battle on this flight), the Cambodian Invasion, battles around Haiphong and Khesangh, north and south China Seas, and battles in the “jungle”, South Vietnam.
Another special “first” for the historic Honor Flight includes a grand welcome home with the performance of The King’s Regiment Marching Band from The King’s Academy from West Palm Beach, FL. The 32-student marching band will greet the 82 veterans at the traditional Honor Flight “Operation Homecoming” in full red, white and blue regalia trumpeting their appreciation for the veterans’ service with their gift of music.
“It is a great honor to participate in the festivities as our community welcomes back our military veterans,” said David Skinner, Director of Instrumental Arts at The Kings Academy. “I am especially grateful that my students have been given the opportunity to learn the importance, firsthand, of honoring the brave men and women who have given so much to secure the freedom we enjoy every day. Seeing the faces of our veterans being welcomed home will no doubt leave a lasting impression on the band members, and will help to instill this value in their young hearts and minds.”
As with every Honor Flight, the public is invited and encouraged to come show their gratitude by welcoming the veterans home from Washington at Palm Beach International Airport the evening of Saturday, October 13th. Operation Homecoming takes place on Level 2, Concourse A/B. The Honor Flight is scheduled to arrive at 7:20PM from DCA. Early arrival is suggested.
Please come be part of a heart-warming evening. Bring family and friends, flags, “Welcome Home” signs and cheers. Shake hands with these heroes. This festive welcome home tops off a day that most veterans say ranks with the day they were married and the birth of their children.
The King’s Academy Drum Major Lauren Arrington states, “It is a distinct privilege to welcome home these veterans. As students, we enjoy the result of the multitude of sacrifices by the men and women who fought for our freedom.” And as citizens, we do, too.
For more information on Operation Homecoming, please call 1-855-FLYAVET (855-359-2838).
