Children of Fallen Heroes is proud to have taken part in the event and very appreciative of the warm welcome we received from everyone. We look forward to growing with your community and working with all of you to help the families and children of our fallen heroes.
About Event It was emotional and inspirational having the opportunity for Children of Fallen Heroes to parachute jump in a flag honoring our dear friend Rudy Malnati. He was the heart and soul of the Milwaukee and Chicago Air and Water Show for almost 50 years.
As we prepared for briefings before the Milwaukee Air and Water Show, the performers and staff dedicated this show in honor Rudy Malnati.
