B&S Aircraft's booth at AirVenture honored veterans

Carrie Lindeman from B&S Aircraft e-mailed photos from the company’s exhibit at EAA’s AirVenture air show in Oshkosh, Wis., last week.

The show’s theme this year was “Salute to Veterans.” B&S honored combat veteran Capt. Brian Brennan at its exhibit.

Brennan was injured in Afghanistan when an IED exploded under the Humvee he was traveling in. He was one of two survivors. Brennan, a double amputee, has set up a foundation to help others injured in the line of duty:

B&S Aircraft’s exhibit also had a banner for visitors to sign to thank the troops.

“The banner was such a hit, it was filled with messages after the first two days and a second banner had to be produced,” Lindeman said in her e-mail.  The banners will be sent to troops in Afghanistan.
