8 News Now: Celebration held for local veterans

LAS VEGAS – They served our country selflessly and with bravery. On Saturday, Honor Flight of Southern Nevada held a special celebration for local veterans.

92-year-old Manuel Aronstein was one of the vets in attendance who is unable to take part in the traditional flight to Washington, D.C. He served our country in WWII.

“I was with the 29th division, which was a D-Day division and I had 100 combat days,” Aronstein said.

He was one of the many service members being honored at the Welcome Home event. The vets ranged in ages from 80 to 101.

“There a lot of Veterans in Las Vegas, a heck of a lot, especially from the Air Force because the base is right here,” said Jerry Pressman, veteran of the Korean War.

The event gave vets a chance to unite and swap stories of their days of service.

“It’s nice to know that there are still people alive who are close to my age that we can still talk about our experiences,” said Aronstein.

It also gave the community the opportunity to say thank you.

“It’s that you’re appreciated for the service you were in, the time that you were in,” Pressman said.

Veterans also got to watch footage of a previous honor flight which took them through the war monuments in Washington, D.C.
