SPOKANE HONOR FLIGHT WILL TAKE OFF TOMORROW... SENDING
WW2 VETERANS TO THE NATION'S CAPITOL TO EXPERIENCE
THEIR MEMORIAL... FREE OF CHARGE.
ALLOWING VETERANS TO HONOR THEIR OWN... IN THEIR OWN
Honor Flight is a way to remember. Remember those
who have served, and those who never came home. More
than 100,000 World War two veterans have flown to
Washington D.C. to visit the memorial that honors
their service and sacrifice and reminsce with fellow
servicemen, all at no cost to them. Richard Nowell
of Spokane who served in the Pillipines in 1945, is
embarking on his honor flight tomorrow.
It is a way of recognizing and rewarding the sacrifices
in some cases of veterans who have served our country."
Nowells Honor Flight is dedicated to the 3 airmen
from Fairchild who lost their lives after their KC-135
crashed last year in Krgistan. He says it makes this
special trip, even more meaningful.
"I think it's quite an honor to those 3 who lost thier
lives in the service of our country. I think it's
a great great way to dedicate this particular honor
The 89 veterans on this flight will return on Wednesday,
and continue, to remember.
