Local veterans appreciate Woods Foundation support of Honor Flights

Send a link to a friend 

To the editor:

Last Saturday, Orville Shaffer and I went to the annual meeting of the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight organization. We learned that this group has sent over 800 veterans on this great adventure to see the memorials in Washington. We also learned that the Woods Foundation in Lincoln has been a benefactor to this group, and, on behalf of all veterans who have been privileged to make this trip and those who will make the trip in the future, we publicly express our appreciation to the Woods Foundation.

Land of Lincoln Honor Flight has three flights scheduled this year. We will try to make sure these dates are published and urge all to try to make the trek down to Capital Airport to watch the welcome home for those who have made this trip. It is inspirational!

Orville Shaffer and Bill Gossett
