The third Honor Flight carrying World War II veterans from Oregon will be heading to Washington Thursday morning. The Honor Flight of Eastern Oregon raises funds to help get Oregon's World War II veterans to see Washington's Veterans Memorials in person. Veterans advocate Dick Tobiason says this latest group has nearly 50 veterans. “So we're down to the last 10% of the 2-million veterans left. We’re losing 1200 a day, that's 400,000 a year. So we only have three to four years left to do this.” The group will have breakfast with U.S. Congressman Greg Walden and U.S. Senator Ron Wyden. They'll see the Veterans Memorials and get a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol. The group will return on Sunday.
