It was a special day for 1700 military family members who have lost a parent in the war on terrorism. The Airpower Foundation joined with American Airlines and other generous sponsors to host the Snowball Express. 9 American jets sprinted across the nation gathering up the families bringing them to Dallas for a 4 day holiday extravaganza. Many of these children feel like the odd man out after losing a parent in the war. Snowball express gives them a chance to know they are not alone, not forgotten and that it’s okay to make new memories.
