Thanks Honor Flight volunteers

To the editor:

Our family wishes to thank all the volunteers and donors that helped make the September Honor Flight so memorable and moving for all of our veteran participants.

During our wait for the flight to arrive in Fort Dodge that evening, we spoke with a Vietnam veteran about how wonderful the Honor Flights are for our military. The Vietnam vet expressed concern that people would “tire” of donating and that future flights might be few and far between.

A retired Army veteran, a family member visiting from Georgia, stated that his area of Georgia had not had an Honor Flight in years. We were proud to tell him that our area of Iowa had provided several such flights to our folks. He was very impressed with Iowa.

We urge the Brushy Creek area to continue to contribute time and money so that all veterans of our area in Iowa will someday be honored for their service as well.
