Thanks for this information, Seeing Red AZ!
can you please tell me what the flyover will be this year on 11/12/12?
This was all I could find, and it’s not really what you’re looking for, Loretta. Sorry not to be more of a help to you. Best bet? Try calling the VA.
Reading this makes me wish we still lived in Phoenix at 12th Street and Northern.
