Veterans Day at Intrepid

The Intrepid has a long history of honoring the veterans who served aboard her during World War II and in Vietnam.  Many of them returned today for special events including the landing and take-off of a U.S. Air Force HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter and the raising of funds to support the Fisher Foundation Fallen Heroes Fund.

Dave Cummings, above, a huge fan of basketball, raised funds for the Fallen Heroes Fund in his quest to shoot one million foul shots.  With a basketball hoop on deck, he reached the half-way mark, 500,000 baskets, in front of an appreciative audience of veterans and their families.  To learn more or to make a contribution, click here for the Hoops for Heroes website.
