World War II veterans had to wait a long time to get their own memorial in Washington D.C., and now that it’s there, many won't be able to see it.  That's because the aging population is dying off and the local non-profit that takes them to the memorial is running out of money.  Dick Tobiason is with the Bend Heroes Foundation:  "90% of the WWII vets are already gone; they've already died.  Yes, 16 million served we're down to 1.7 million.  So 7 years ago they started an Honor Flight program because a veteran asked his doctor, ‘Are we ever going to have a program where vets can fly back and see their memorial?’"  An Honor Flight trip this week will their 5th trip to D.C., and then there is another smaller trip planned in September.  Tobiason says after that,  they are broke.  It costs at least $1000 to take each vet to the World War II Memorial.  For more information you can go to: www.bendheroes.org
