WWII Pilots Receive Heartfelt Welcome to NORAD and USNORTHCOM Headquarters

NORAD and USNORTHCOM Public Affairs

A group of WWII veterans and their families were pleasantly surprised and touched to receive such an enthusiastic and warm welcome from the men and women of NORAD and USNORTHCOM during their visit to the Commands on Thursday.

Honored to host the WII veterans and their families, Gen. Lori Robinson, NORAD and USNORTHCOM Commander and LTG Dan Hokanson, USNORTHCOM Deputy Commander helped provide the guests with a better understanding of the unique missions of NORAD and USNORTHCOM to defend the homelands.

The Pilot Classes of WWII reunion consists of Army Air Corps pilot training graduates from 1940-1945. The organization is changing its name to the Pilots of WWII, so members from other branches of service can join their reunions.
