A group of veterans arriving at Reagan National Airport on Wednesday morning, April 15, from Knoxville, Tenn. were greeted with cheers, hugs, and patriotic music. The songs, including official hymns of the Armed Forces, were sung by the Harmony Heritage Singers, a men’s barbershop chorus based in Mount Vernon. The chorus is one of several local groups who volunteer to participate in the Honor Flight program, which honors veterans who served in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam by flying them to see the memorials built in their honor in Washington, D.C. The Harmony Heritage Singers rehearse at Sherwood Regional Library and give over 25 performances each year, many of which are at retirement communities or assisted living facilities. Most chorus members are veterans themselves. At left, the chorus warms up under Assistant Director Drew Fuller.
