The buzz of the Philadelphia Police Department’s low-flying helicopter was the first sign something big was happening. Then, the whine of sirens and the roar of Warrior Watch motorcycles drowned out the cheering crowds dressed in red, white, and blue.
Shortly past 6 p.m. Monday, a convoy of buses carrying Bucks County military veterans, many in their 80s and 90s, and their guardians pulled up to Parx East in Bensalem to a rousing celebration. The veterans were returning from the Bucks County Tour of Honor, which started early Monday morning and transported the veterans to Arlington National Cemetery, the U.S. Air Force Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, and the World War II Memorial.
Following their return to Bucks County, the veterans were treated to live entertainment, the Neshaminy High School marching band, Bensalem High School cheerleaders, and a dinner celebration inside the casino.
