AirVenture 2011 – B & S Aircraft Parts and Accessories
Jul 25, 2011 - Jul 31, 2011
B & S Aircraft Parts & Accessories will offer a salute to wounded veterans at its exhibit in Hangar D, # 3085, during the Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA’s) annual AirVenture Fly-In and Convention in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Marine Sergeant Jonathan Blank of Augusta, Kansas will be the company’s guest during the show.
Sergeant Blank was injured in October of 2010 in Helmand Province, Afghanistan while on duty with the 1st Reconnaissance Battalion. On foot patrol four days before he was scheduled to rotate back to the States, he lost both his legs and sustained internal injuries when an improvised explosive device detonated. After months of recovery and rehabilitation, the now 24-year old Marine exemplifies the USMC’s motto, Semper Fidelis–“always faithful.”
Sergeant Blank has asked to be able to promote the Semper Fi Fund as he is well aware of how much blood, sweat and tears it take for not only the service member but the families to service our nation. His goal is to promote the Fund as well as possibly raise some donations.
Please stop by Hangar D, Booth #3085 to meet Sergeant Blank and the B & S Aircraft crew! Sergeant Blank will be attending the event until July 29th.
