COLUMBUS, Ga. - March 21, 2015 - PRLog -- Retired Army Veteran, Lani Tucker, joined members of the DAV (Disabled American Veterans) Flight Team, who alongside their B-25 Bomber “Panchito” are at the Columbus Airport this weekend sharing DAV’s message of support of local veterans at the Thunder in the Valley Airshow. Ms. Tucker is being recognized for her service with a special award: “Strength & Courage…Then & Now” reminding us that the services and benefits provided by DAV are just as relevant now as they were when DAV was founded in 1920.

Lani Tucker started her military career in the Women’s Army Corps (WAC).  She served in the U.S. Army from 1975 to 1996 in the Military Police and was stationed at several bases stateside as well as Germany and Korea.

Following her military career Ms. Tucker joined the DAV and is currently a member of Chapter 7 in Columbus.  She grew up in a family with a military history as her father served over 30 years.  The tradition continued as her son served eight years as a Marine.

“The DAV is an elite group of people who take care of veterans and their families.  My heroes are the men and women of our armed forces who bravely sacrificed for our country.  They are out there fighting for our right to be here today enjoying things like this air show.  All of those men and women gave some…and some gave all,” said Tucker.

Tucker proudly joined the DAV Flight Team at the Thunder in the Valley Airshow alongside the B-25 “Panchito” to provide information about DAV programs/benefits and to remind people of the sacrifices veterans make for freedom.

The DAV Flight Team is an aviation outreach program on a nationwide airshow circuit to promote the services DAV provides to injured veterans and their family members.

DAV (Disabled American Veterans), representing more than 1.2 million disabled veterans, is a non-profit organization founded in 1920 and chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1932.  It is dedicated to one single purpose:  fulfilling our promises to the men and women who served.
