After more than a year of cancellations and postponements, Honor Flight of Central Oregon took off for Washington D.C. on September 22. Twenty-three veterans from the Korean and Vietnam wars joined this year’s trip, which served as an opportunity to honor them for their service.
Due to COVID-19 precautions, Honor Flights around the nation were postponed from their annual trips taking veterans to our nation’s capital throughout years 2020 and 2021. Dane Prevatt, president of Honor Flight of Central Oregon, was forced to cancel three times before the successful September trip.
“Time is of the essence with these guys, and I didn’t want to wait any longer,” he said.
