Honor Flight Takes More WWII Vets To D.C.

Honor Flight Takes More WWII Vets To D.C.

Inland Northwest Honor Flight will be taking another 26 veterans to Washington D.C. Friday.

The group plans to meet at Spokane International Airport at 11 a.m. Friday to send the vets off on their trip.

This year funding has kept them from taking fewer veterans than normal.  They usually send 37 vets on the honor flight.

The honor flight group still has 196 people on the waiting list for the trip, and they are working hard to raise funds to continue to get take more World War II vets back to the capital.

INWHF will have taken 400 people on the flight upon completion of this trip.

By now most of you know about the upcoming Spokane Oktoberfest event taking place this Friday and Saturday in Spokane. Fewer of you know about the Brewers’ Harvest Expo taking place in Ephrata on Saturday afternoon. Both of the events benefit a worthy cause. - (Read more at Washington Beer Blog)
