Honoring Cher Ami, Pigeon Hero of World War I

This month, we honor Cher Ami, a carrier pigeon and hero of World War I. On his last mission on October 4th, 1918, Cher Ami was hit twice by enemy fire but completed his mission even though injured and saved the lives of 200 soldiers.

We will be honoring Cher Ami this month with glass carrier pigeons created in our hot shop.

Come in and see how the pigeons are coming along, Mon-Sat 10am to 4pm this month! If you would like to read more about the amazing Cher Ami, we recommend this article from Buzzfeed News.

A big thanks to the American Racing Pigeon Union for all their help!
