(NAPSI)—Each year in the United States, nearly 16,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer. And on any given day, as many as 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. Beyond its debilitating symptoms, the death rate for Alzheimer’s is on the rise.
In honor of National Model Aviation Day, The Sonoran Desert Flyers will be putting on a demonstration and air show this Saturday, Aug. 16 from 8 a.m. to noon.
(NAPSI)—After soldiers return home from demanding tours of duty, they’re eager to resume the simple pleasures of life, like spending time with family, enjoying abandoned hobbies or reconnecting with friends. But the warriors—as well as their caregivers—often learn that resuming “normal” life can be a challenge.
Tens of thousands of veterans and caregivers receive support each year through programs that range from helping with career placement to providing support for dealing with Combat Stress Recovery. (NAPS)
Wow! What a show the Sonoran Desert Flyers put on Saturday at Naranja Park in Oro Valley for their annual Aviation Awareness Day. There was something for everyone - from high tech model aircraft demonstrations to para gliders plus a visit from a local medical rescue helicopter. The morning started out darn chilly but it soon heated up with the enthusiasm of the crowd reacting to the skillfulness of the flyers putting their aircraft through acrobatic maneuvers. And some of the most skillful flyers were the kids as young as 8 and 11 years old! One of the best things about the event was that all the raffle proceeds went to the Wounded Warrior Project! Congratulations to the Sonoran Desert Flyers and to the town of Oro Valley for providing a super family event.

John Wayne. More specifically, watching legendary actor John Wayne up on the movie screen, playing a Marine who uses his teeth to pull the pin out of a grenade and then hurls the grenade at the bad guys in a classic war film.
Event coordinators were pleased with the turnout for the Wounded Warrior Project benefit held at the Picture Rocks Fire Station on Aug. 20. The event was coordinated by Marcia Hay and raised an estimated $4,200.
For the Wounded Warrior Project benefit to be a success, it took the hard work of plenty of volunteers, as seen above.
In April of last year, Marcia Hay traveled to California to see her brother, Philip McCulloch Jr., return to the United States after being deployed in Afghanistan with the United States Marine Corps. While serving in Afghanistan, the vehicle Sgt. “Mac” McCulloch was riding in was hit with a rocket-propelled grenade.
