According to Lynda Hager, co-ordinator for local Veterans attending Freedom Honor Flights, the public is invited to attend a hometown Send-Off on Thursday September 20 at 11:30 in front of the Hopkins County Courthouse. A trio of local Vietnam Vets have been selected to travel to a grand reception in our nation’s capitol and a whirlwind tour of the monuments there. The veterans are Michael Barrett, John Ward and Bobby Swatsell. You can see the program schedule below, as well as a history of local honoree’s trips since 2009 in the Honor Flights System.
The Honor Flights Mission: To transport America’s Veterans to Washington, DC to visit those memorials dedicated to honor the service and sacrifices of themselves and their friends. Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. Subsequent to the World War II veterans, our efforts will then focus on our Korean War and then Vietnam War veterans, honoring them similarly
