This afternoon at about 3:30, OS91 welcomed the living symbol of America, the bald Eagle Challenger, to Orlando with a Police Motorcycle Escort provided by Orange County Sheriff's Office amidst the excitement of the students of New Hope Christian Academy of Minneola, FL and Tri-L Christian Academy of Orlando, waving flags and cheering.
Challenger and his handler, Al Cecere, Founder of the American Eagle Foundation
Challenger is here for OS91's 3rd Annual Tribute to Honor America's 1st Responders, which will be held at the Rosen Centre Wednesday, September 29th. Challenger will fly for all disabled and homebound Veterans, who can no longer fly themselves. Al was so touched by Orlando's welcome to Challenger saying, "The last time Challenger received a Police Escort was right after 9/11!" A heartfelt thanks to MEARS, for giving Challenger, Al and staff from the American Eagle Foundation a ride in style from OIA to the Hotel.
Challenger, Operation Safety 91 welcomes you!
