CINCINNATI - Honor Flight Tri-State, a local organization created to honor America's veterans for serving their country, needs more veterans to sign up for a free trip to visit the World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War and US Air Force memorials in Washington, D.C.
Cheryl Popp, director of Honor Flight Tri-State says out of five flights for 2012, they have three flights full but need to fill the other two.
The honor flights are all expense paid trips to the memorials for a day. The non-profit organization sponsors the trips because organizers say many veterans cannot afford a trip to Washington, D.C. and are unable to visit the memorials that were built for them.
Organizers say the trip it is a gift to show the veterans appreciation for putting their lives on the line for our country.
Popp said they have raised enough funds, thanks to their sponsors, to take 400 veterans in 2012.
If you are a World War II or Korean veteran and are interested in taking a flight, please call Honor Flight Tri-State hotline at (513) 277-9626. You can also email them by clicking here . Veterans who are interested in going will have to fill out an application. Veterans may take a family member (other than a spouse) on the trip.
