Blue Angels meet with Wisconsin veterans

CHIPPEWA FALLS (WKOW) — Patriotism hits the skies in western Wisconsin this weekend.
 The Navy’s Blue Angels are in town, but they did a little ground work on Friday.
 Members of the team visited the Wisconsin Veterans Home in Chippewa Falls, where they swapped stories with former soldiers about their time in the service.
The pilots and the veterans say this weekend is not only a time to celebrate our country’s freedom, but to remember all those who helped give us that freedom.
“Many people come up and say, “Thank you for your service,” and it makes me feel real good.  And you say. “Well thank you for thanking me,” because there’s a whole lot more guys who did a lot more than I did.” said Korean War vet Dennis Reiter.
After the visit, the veterans got to watch the Blue Angels practice.
The jets are in western Wisconsin for the Chippewa Valley Air Show.
