Public invited to learn about Honor Flight
Veterans Honor Flight of Southern Illinois in Marion will be presenting an informational meeting and program that is open to the public beginning at 5:00 p.m. on August 15. This meeting will be held at the Centralia Masonic Lodge, located at 3rd and Poplar St.
Those in attendance will learn more about the Honor Flight, how to sign up a veteran and make application for a free trip to Washington, D.C. There are two trips a year on a chartered plane — in May and October — and they visit the monuments and memorials honoring their service and sacrifice.
Each veteran has a guide to take care of their needs. A wheelchair is provided for each veteran to speed transit and reduce fatigue.
