North Country Honor Flights has put together a yearbook of their first several flights which will be sold locally to raise money for future flights. They are currently looking for local businesses who would like to buy advertising in the book. Interested businesses can contact Kaifetz at 834-9901.
Saturday’s Honor Flight will be leaving from the old base oval at 6:45 a.m.
Fifteen North Country WW-II veterans will be on board, including two from Vermont for the first time. Among the heroes on the flight are a Brigadier General, two D-Day veterans, and a Silver Star recipient from 101st Airborne Division.
The public is encouraged to attend the Flag Ceremony at the Old Base Parade Grounds, U.S. Oval, at 7 a.m. sharp, followed by the Sendoff Ceremony at Plattsburgh International Airport at 7:45 a.m. prior to the flight. This is the last flight of the year for North Country Honor Flight. Next spring flights will resume on May 17, 2014.
