Deschutes County Gives Funds to Honor Flight Program

The county commissioners approved spending 15-hundred dollars toward the non profit that helps World War Two veterans see the World War Two Memorial before they die.

 

Military Medal of Honor recipient Bob Maxwell thanked the commissioners for helping support the program.

 

 "I want to remind you that by doing this you'll be sending three veterans to Washingotn, who would not have made it.  And it's very much appreciated -- Thank you very much!"

 

It costs $500 per veteran to make the trip to Washington D.C.

 

Southwest Airlines donated the airfare and Shiloh Inn provides one night's stay.  So the $12-hundred dollar price tag is reduced to $500 dollars.
