Remembering Western Slope Honor Flight [VIDEO]
Western Slope Honor Flight was established to fulfill the mission of insuring World War II vets from Western Colorado had the opportunity to visit their memorial in Washington DC. Take a look back at three of the five flights to the World War II Memorial.
The veterans in white t-shirts were those who traveled on the first Western Slope Honor Flight, those in green were on the third flight, while those in blue were on the fifth.
The individuals you see in yellow and red were "Guardians," individuals who paid their own way, to the tune of $950.00, to serve as assistants on the flight. Some Guardians were medical professionals, while others were members of the media, and some were simply those who chose to give back to the veterans from our greatest generation.
Please take a moment to view the video, and pay tribute to our World War II veterans.
