Barb Nelson shared about a program dear to her heart: Honor Flight. From the Inland Northwest Honor Flight website: "Inland Northwest Honor Flight's mission is to transport Inland Northwest war veterans to Washington D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices.
"Support for these trips is provided by volunteers and is at no cost to the veterans. Top priority is given to our most senior heroes - survivors of WWII and any veteran with a terminal illness who wishes to visit their memorial. The program will naturally transition to the Korean War, Vietnam War and all other veterans who served, on a chronological basis."
Anyone wishing to donate to our local Honor Flight should send donations to: Inland Northwest Honor Flight, 608 W. 2nd, Suite 309, Spokane, WA 99201.
