Here's a little about my father. Dad went into the Army during World War II and ended up at Fort Bragg in 1943 and then went off to Europe.
After his service during WWII he was discharged from the Army. He met my mother and they married in 1947 in Cameron, W.Va. This is a very important fact. As Korea started to get hot, my dad re-enlisted and was off to Korea. My mom also enlisted in the Women's Army Corps and served her time during the Korean War.
In Maryville, Missouri, Sons of the American Legion (SAL) Post 464 held a special event to honor veterans who could not make an Honor Flight. The Veterans' Day of Honor, modeled after Kansas City, Missouri's, "flightless Honor Flight," took place Nov. 5, 2016, at a new performing arts center at the local high school. Between 15 and 20 veteran honorees attended.
The Honor Flight program attempts to bring World War II, Korean War and Vietnam veterans to Washington, D.C., to honor them and to show them the memorials dedicated to them and their comrades.
