Flight of Honor

World War II veterans go to Washington, D.C., to see their memorial

Thousands of World War II veterans die each week without seeing the national memorial for their war. But folks in the small Kansas town of Lyndon are rallying to send as many Kansas veterans as possible to the memorial - before it's too late. Two Lawrence residents recently got that chance.

I was on both the flights from KCI to Baltimore and back, though not a part of the group itself. I was extrememly pleased to witness and participate in several standing ovations for these men with they were introduced. I thanked the volunteers but that was not enough. Everyone should thank these folks as well as the vets they are helping.
