Last week, an Envoy charter took Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band to San Juan (SJU) to play a special concert for U.S. Army servicemen and women stationed at Ft. Buchanan. Another charter took the band home the following day.
Envoy has a strong history with Puerto Rico – our subsidiary, Executive Airlines, operated an American Eagle hub in SJU for more than 27 years prior to its closure in 2013, and many of us come from, or have friends and family in, Puerto Rico. With Hurricane Maria taking its toll on the island last year, this concert helped lift the spirits of those stationed at Ft. Buchanan and the surrounding area, with the base opening its doors to allow the public to attend the free concert.
“From Soaring Valor to Snowball Express, Lt. Dan Band charters and more, Envoy is a proud supporter of the efforts of the Gary Sinise Foundation,” said Envoy SOC Director Robert Nault. “While Envoy no longer operates in San Juan, we’re proud to help support the people of Puerto Rico with charters and charity efforts such as these.”
