Hendrix letter: Veterans should take Honor Flight

-A A +A

Several  years ago, I had the fantastic opportunity to travel with a group of World War II veterans on an Honor Flight, which flew out of Columbia.
I am a strong supporter of our military forces and will wave the U.S. flag in a heartbeat. To say that I had an exciting and emotional day would be an understatement.
It was an honor to be there and share in the veterans’ reminiscing of days gone by.
If you are or know of a World War II veteran who has not taken an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C., please don’t pass up the opportunity.
The Honor Flight group out of Columbia is putting another trip together, set for May 13, and World War II veterans are eligible to go. (Korean War veterans are also eligible, but priority goes to World War II vets.)
If you are interested and need additional information or assistance, please don’t hesitate to call Ernest Stroud at (803) 475-2654  or (803) 289-9287.
To all who have served our great nation in the military, I say God bless you always and thank you from the bottom of my heart.
