Barksdale pilots visit Overton Brooks VA Medical Center

Friday, November 16, 2012 - 9:43pm

Patients at Shreveport's Overton Brooks VA Medical Center, got a happy surprise when over two dozen pilots from nearby Barksdale came to visit them Friday afternoon.

The pilots came bearing gifts, and handmade cards from Ark-La-Tex first graders. The veterans loved the cards, misspellings and all, but most of all, they loved having visitors to talk to.

The pilots and veterans talked about everything, from which branch of the military they served, to where they served, and even football and television.

The two groups both thanked each other for their service to this country, often times bringing tears to both groups.
