29 world war two veterans and their guardians took a trip of a lifetime last week. Dick Tobiason, President of the Bend Heroes Foundation says the men who went saw and felt the gratitude of a thankful nation. “We went down to the World War II Memorial, where we spent about 3 hours; because that the whole reason we go there. We actually saw about 11 different sites, but of course we spent most of the time at the World War II Memorial. We were welcomed by Senator Bob Dole, who is instrumental in advocating the Memorial and raising the fund for it. we had a great time with him. He came there just for us." Tobiason says there were about a hundred school kids at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier that were very excited to meet the veterans, and took lots of pictures with them. And when it was time to leave the Memorial, the kids lined up side-by-side and cheered the vets on. Tobiason says they are planning another honor flight for September and can always use help to pay for the tips. If you can help, please go to: www.bendheroes.org .
