Honor Flight for World War II Veterans

Since the age of most surviving World WarII veterans is now at a minimum of 85, a non-profit group is trying to get as many WWII veterans as possible back to Washington DC to visit the World WarII Veterans Memorial.

The group is called Honor Flight of Oregon, which is rounding up as many WWII veterans as they can, and fly them back to Washington on a four day trip, all expenses paid, to visit the memorial. Veterans in wheelchairs are sincerely welcome and accommodated according to Lincoln County Honor Flight coordinator Valerie Patterson.

Patterson said there are a number of WWII veterans in Lincoln County that should be made aware of the service.

Veterans and any Guardians who assist them will visit the WWII Veterans Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, Iwo Jima Memorial, Tomb of the Unknowns and other veterans memorials around the nation’s capital.  Again, the trip is free to all WWII veterans who apply for the trip.  However, their guardians must pay their own way.

Patterson says there are flights scheduled for the end of April and in mid-May.  Twenty-five WWII veterans from Lincoln, Lane, Benton and Linn counties will be on each Honor Flight.

For information on how to apply to travel to Washington DC courtesy of Honor Flight  please contact Lincoln County Honor Flight coordinator Valerie Patterson at 541-265-8864, or BayfrontGirl@Gmail.com by email.  Also visit their website at www.SWVHonorFlight.org

** An earlier version of this story quoted a city councilor saying that former Moby Dick’s owner Milt Prietz should be contacted because he’s a WWII veteran. Come to find out, Milt has already taken Honor Flight up on its offer and made the trip last October!
