Two Post members, Jean Whalley and Harry Miller, will be flying to Washington DC during the month of April. The Post is assisting in this endeavor by providing $800 which will cover the cost of two “guardians” who will accompany Muriel and Harry on their journey and assist them as they tour the Capitol and the various war memorials and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This is the second group of WWII veterans we have sent to Washington D.C. Honor Flight was originated when a group of private pilots flew WWII veterans to view the WWII Memorial. It quickly grew and, to date, 81,000 veterans have been flown to Washington DC. Just as an aside, Southwest Airlines has donated thousands of free tickets. Keep this in mind the next time you book a flight.
