I had the privilege of assisting the veterans when they arrived at the Billings airport for the inaugural Big Sky Honor Flight out of Montana. There were 97 veterans, along with family and friends.
This is a chartered flight program which flies Montana veterans to Washington, D.C., to view the World War II Memorial. The average age of the veterans on this flight was 93. What an opportunity the trip was for them! There are still 200 Montana veterans waiting to take an Honor Flight.
There is a saying, “We fill a bucket one drop at a time.” I would like to encourage everyone who can to send a donation, however large or small, to the Big Sky Honor Flight program. Time may be running out for some of these veterans and we can help them.
Donations may be made to: Big Sky Honor Flight, P.O. Box 80201, Billings, MT 59108 or by visiting their website at: http://bigskyhonorflight.org.
