Synopsis:

On this episode, Erick and the crew travel to West Tennessee to meet some of the region's most interesting and inspiring heroes. First they swoop into Erick's hometown of Halls to attend the Wings Over Halls Air Show. Since 1994 the folks at the Halls’ Veteran’s Museum have been educating visitors about the role that Dyersburg Army Air Base had on war efforts between 1942 and 1945, training over 1,000 ten-man B-17 crews before they were deployed to the European Theater.

Erick then migrates over to the John Tully Wildlife Management Area to learn how TWRA utilizes duck banding to sustain healthy waterfowl and keep hunters flocking to West Tennessee each season. Finally, Erick lands himself at the local Fire Hall to tag along for a few practice drills and get a closer look at how these civil servants help save lives every day.

It’s an episode that’ll have you flyin’ high and feeling thankful as Erick sheds a little sunshine on a hometown happening and takes a break to celebrate those who serve.
