For the 5th year, South Willamette Valley Honor Flight will have the honor of World War II and Korea War Veterans from Lincoln County, riding our float in Newport Loyalty Days Parade this Saturday, May 5. There will be four WWII and two Korea veterans who have been on an Honor Flight or are going on May 2018 flight.
SWVHF serves Benton, Lane, Linn and Lincoln Counties and raises money for these flights so our veterans never pay any cost. We take them to Washington DC to visit their Memorials twice a year. For further information, please go to www.swvhonorflight.org.
