Honor Flight plans May trip to Washington
The Brushy Creek Area Honor Flight will have another flight to Washington, DC, our nation’s capitol, on Saturday, May 11, organizers have announced.
The first Honor Flight this year will take remaining World War II veterans that could not join their fellow WWII vets during the first five honor flights.
They will be joined by approximately 105 Korean War veterans. A Korean vet must have one day of active duty between June 1, 1950, and Jan. 31, 1955, to qualify for the trip.
All WWII and Korean War veterans will fly free and will be accompanied by a guardian, who must pay $600 for the flight, meals and on-ground transportation.
Because it costs approximately $600 for each participant, Brushy Creek Honor Flight organizers are asking those who can afford to, to seriously consider sponsoring a veteran.
Applications are still being received and may be acquired from the Humboldt County Veteran’s Affairs office, printing out the downloadable PDF forms at www.humboldtcountyia.org, by clicking on Veterans Affairs, or by calling Charles Walker at the Walker Law office in Fort Dodge, 515-576-0671.
