For military veterans, Honor Flight is a day they always will remember — the applause from people, their greetings of “thank you for your service,” the hugs given to veterans in wheelchairs, the genuine respect afforded by people of all ages, especially from women and young girls, and, of course, what they viewed in Washington, D.C.

Franklin County Honor Flight spread its professional wings again Wednesday to take 33 military veterans and their Guardians to our nation’s capital where they visited memorials dedicated to them and other monuments. Honor Flight is a one-day event that is free to veterans. The Guardians pay their own way and look after the veterans in a competent and caring manner.
