Honor Flight presentation coming to Mound VFW
Sadly, because of their age, financial constraints or health concerns, many of these veterans may not have an opportunity to see their monument. Honor Flight is a program that offers free flights to World War II veterans to Washington D.C. to see our National World War II Monument.
This complimentary trip is designed to thank, recognize and salute WW II veterans for their service. The trip is a small recognition of our heroes, who literally and collectively saved the world. Many local WW II veterans, like Earl Taylor, have already participated in an Honor Flight, and others may wish to.
On Oct. 10, Jerry Kyser, the director of Honor Flight Twin Cities, will be at Mound’s Surfside Park’s Depot/Pavilion to present information about past Honor Flights and explain how other WW II veterans can participate in future Honor Flights.
The Surfside Park, formerly known as the Bayside Park, is located at 5701 Bartlett Blvd. in Mound.
The upcoming Honor Flight Presentation is sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post # 7. The public is welcome and invited to this event. The admission is free. The VFW will welcome the public at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at the Surfside Park’s Pavilion. The Honor Flight Presentation will begin at 8 p.m.
