UTICA, NY – The United States Air Force Heritage of America Concert band performed a special Veterans Day concert at the Stanley Theatre Monday.
Local veterans and their families packed the theater, even singing along when the Star Spangled Banner was played.
From Yankee Doodle to Over the Rainbow, there was something for everyone to enjoy.
John Massoud, a WWII veteran, says hearing these classics brings back a lot of memories.
“It feels great. It gives you a chance to reminisce a little bit too. Makes me think back 75 years ago when I got out of the Navy”.
As a salute to all the veterans in attendance, the band finished off the concert with an Armed Services Medley.
