Another group of Nebraska veterans will be heading Washington D.C. next spring. Bill Williams with Patriotic Productions is the organizer of the Honor Flights and says they have selected the next group that will make a day trip to Washington D.C.
Williams says, “This will be the Nebraska Purple Heart Flight. Purple Heart recipients from the Gulf War, Iraq and Afghanistan. We are also going to invite the highest decorated veterans of the same conflicts. Our special guests will be the children and the young widows of the fallen in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
The Honor Flight is set for May 24th. Williams says this is Memorial Day weekend and their Remembering Our Fallen Tribute Towers will be on display near the Lincoln Monument making this a very special trip. They will also visit a number of monuments, memorials and Arlington National Cemetery.
Williams says they will soon be taking applications for those wanting to make the trip. Those wanting more information should log on to patrioticproductions.org.
