To the Editor:
I applaud the Mercury for covering the Honor Flight from Wamego and the faculty of Wamego High School for the organization of the veterans’ flight to Washington, D.C., on May 28,
I, too, have been privileged to take part in this program a year ago.
One highlight of my trip was that my daughter accompanied me as my guardian. How often does a father get to spend three days with an offspring! That alone made the trip memorable.
Of the 17 million of us in World War II, fewer than 2 million are still with us. If you are a veteran, I urge you to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
