We quite possibly wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for our World War II veterans.
The youngest member of that group is now 78 years old.
Many World War II vets have not seen their War Memorial in Washington, D.C., dedicated three and a half years ago.
More than 1,000 of these veterans die each day so many will never see it.
Honor Flight is a program established by a Retired Air Force Captain that flies World War II vets to Washington, D.C. to tour the memorials constructed in honor of their service.
Hats off to Prattville leaders for establishing a Prattville South Alabama Chapter of the Honor Flight program to give World War II veterans in our area this opportunity.
The first flight is set for May 17th next year.
Veterans fly up and back in one day and receive the heroes welcome they richly deserve.
Some veterans in the Huntsville area took such a flight in April of this year with the Tennessee Valley chapter of the Honor Flight program.
War War II veterans in our area interested in being on the flight next May, and sponsors who want to help them, contact the Prattville chamber.
We salute all veterans and appreciate your sacrifices for our country.
