Honor, Respect, Gratitude

Nov 16 2009 Honor, Respect, Gratitude BY admin TAGS Misc.

 

Bright and early tomorrow morning (0500!) the airport will host the first, of what we hope will be many, Ozarks Honor Flights.

 

Honor Flights began in Ohio in 2005. They have one goal:

 

"To transport, in the safest and most timely means possible, military veterans of World War II to Washington DC to view their World War II Memorial and other commemorative sites with the highest degree of honor, respect and gratitude at no cost to the veteran."

 

Why the urgency? The World War II memorial wasn't completed until 2004. So most veterans of that war have never seen it. And many have left us without seeing it. Visit the Ozarks Honor Flight web site by clicking here.
