Kalitta Charters just brought this young marine back to his home in Riverside, CAL to his family. He was greeted by Marine Corp color guard, Riverside County Sheriffs Office, Fire Dept, reporters and the press.
The corporal is one of the 13 who lost their lives in Afghanistan a few weeks ago. A fitting ceremony for one of our heroes.

I've been on a ride to escort a young Soldier from the Airport near me. Kalitta flew him in. I was impressed to say the least. Awesome people that provide a priceless service for free.

It is an awesome service but I’m pretty sure they don’t do it for free. When the government first started requiring military or private transport in the early 2000’s that contract was $11M. Kalita keeps a few jets at Dover just for this service.

There were 3 different parades and terrific show of support yesterday. The freeways were just covered with people and flags showing respect for our 3 hometown heroes.
Kudos to Kallita Charters for bringing these 3 boys home.

Prayers for their families! Thank you for your service. Not worthy

I have a buddy who flies for them and he races also. Has nothing but good to say about Connie and the Company.
When everyone balked, they delivered during the war! Hats off!


Raceless in California!

You're right Barry. Connie, Doug and the whole crew come through in the end. It's all good with them.
