Sound Off: Kansas Honor Flights donations

How can I contribute to the Kansas Honor Flights to help our veterans make the trip to Washington, D.C., now that the fund created to help them has been looted?

The recent scandal only affected the Great Bend branch of the Kansas Honor Flight, and the Hutchinson-based Kansas Honor Flight is still operating and plans a trip toward the end of April. To donate, visit kansashonorflight.org/Donations.htm, or mail a check, made out to Kansas Honor Flight, to P.O. Box 2371, Hutchinson, KS 67504.

With the Koch's willing to kick vast sums of money into a variety of causes, why don't they do something honorably and contribute to this cause. I know that none of the 4 brothers served in the military, this might be a nice way to contribute to a generation of veterans who served so the Koch family could grow and prosper their buisness adventures. I'll be sending in my contributions now that a reliable fund has been established.

I am sure they appreciate the generosity that you have with their money.

mea culpa: re my prior. Frederick Koch the oldest and non-political of the Koch brothers did serve in the U.S. Navy aboard the old aircraft carriier USS Saratoga following WW2. He and brother William (America's Cup Sailor) lost out in a power struggle with the very political brothers Charles and David for control of the vast Koch holdings.

It urinates me off when I watch a PBS show on television that is sponsored by the David H. Koch foundation. It is too bad when a excellent program is "hosted" by someone who obviously has his own benefit as the major driver. David could give two hoots about you and I. I know, about his cancer research contributions, etc., just think of all the publicity, politics and tax benefits he derives from his "largess".

I am so glad to hear that Hutchinson Kansas Honor Flights are continuing. Taking my father to the WWII memorial on an honor flight was the highlight of my life and his as well only a year before he passed away. He was a radio operator on a B24 in World War II. Throughout the tour people would come up to the veterans and thank them for their service. We should feel some obligation for what our country/state/people can do for these veterans who gave so much, and ask for nothing in return. It is a shame so many die every day, and never get a chance to see the memorial that honors them so well.
