First Tour of Honor for Utah WWII Veterans
Richfield, Utah October 24, 2013 — Panoramaland Honor Flight of Utah, a local hub of the Honor Flight National program (http://www.honorflight.org), has organized the first Honor Flight for Utah’s veterans to Washington. WWII era veterans and their guardians will spend three days visiting the nation’s memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices.
Two teams will be leaving on Tuesday, October 30. Team 1 Alpha, consisting of 42 WWII veterans and their guardians, will depart from the Salt Lake City Airport at 7:05 am. Team 1 Bravo, with 14 individuals will depart the Las Vegas Airport at 6:00 am. The Salt Lake flight returns on Friday November 1 at 1:45 pm, and the St. George contingent should arrive in St. George about 7:30 pm. Members of the press and public are encouraged to help send off and welcome home these brave men who served our nation. Please be at the Southwest Airlines, Terminal 1 airport at 6:00 am. on October 30, and 1:45 on November 1 to welcome them home.
The Utah Honor Flight Committee is a grassroots efforts led by Dan Curtis, who organized similar flights in Kansas. In just a few short weeks a committee was formed and veterans signed up. “We need everyone’s help to find and bring the remaining WWII Vets living here in Utah to go and see their memorials, before it is too late”, said Dan Curtis. “Our World War II vets are dying at a rate of just over 600 a day. Only 1.2 million veterans remain of the 16 million who served our nation. Most have never seen the beautiful memorial built in their honor on the Nation’s Mall. There is no greater feeling that seeing the smiles – and tears – on these heroes faces, and to know we have given them a powerful and healing gift.”
