Editorial Honoring Veterans 5-22-08
Armed Forces Day this past Saturday was an appropriate day for this area's first Honor Flight for World War II veterans to take place.
As we pay tribute this Memorial Day weekend to all veterans who fought for our country, we should also thank the many people involved in making the Honor Flight program take off here.
We editorialized six months ago that flying area World War II vets to Washington, D.C. to tour the memorial dedicated in their honor four years ago was a great project for all of us to support.
Our region not only made it happen, but capped it with a sensational heroes welcome at the airport when the 88 veterans returned. Many military members and many people who helped raise the money to send the veterans came to cheer and say thanks in person!
We can't thank all of the World War II veterans enough for their service and we salute all the families who have lost a loved one in war.
Pause this weekend to remember and rejoice that we live in the greatest country in the world!
