Blue Ridge Honor Flight Hosts Book Signing

(Hendersonville, NC- December 15, 2017) – Blue Ridge Honor Flight will host a book signing with author Jill Tahmooressi, mother of United States Marine Corps veteran Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi who was jailed in Mexico for 214 days.

 In her book, When Light Prevails, Jill shares the actions and emotions she went through to secure her son’s release. For Jill, the book serves to recognize and extend gratitude towards the many, big and small alike who reached out to support and help during the tremendously scary and painful ordeal.

For those who followed Andrew’s fight for freedom back in 2014 on television, radio &/ media outlets or for those just hearing about it for the first time, the book is intensely riveting and revealing.

  “I am sincerely grateful to the Western Carolina folks who stepped up mightily to help secure Andrew’s freedom with HonorAir championing the way. The letters the community sent Andrew, as well as the enormous financial support garnered of $20,000 to help with the legal bills will forever be remembered and cherished,” stated Tahmooressi.

 The book signing will take place at the Henderson County Historic Courthouse on Main Street from 4-7pm on Thursday, December 21, 2017

 Blue Ridge Honor Flight is honored to now be flying WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam War veterans to their memorials in Washington, DC. The organization is now accepting applications for their April 28, 2018 flight from the Greenville Spartanburg Airport in conjunction with Honor Flight Upstate. Applications are available at blueridgehonorflight.com.

For more information about how to get involved in Blue Ridge Honor Flight, make a donation, or to get a veteran signed up for a flight, please visit the Blue Ridge Honor Flight website at blueridgehonorflight.com.
