Letter: WWII vets can sign up for Honor Flight

This letter is directed to all World War II veterans who have not yet seen the WWII Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial and/or the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. I want you to know that it’s possible to see all of these and more, at no cost to you. You will be flown to Washington, D.C., for a full-day guided tour, which includes five meals, wheelchairs if needed and VIP treatment.The people in charge of the Honor Flight are the kindest people you will ever meet. They look after you at all times and assist you in every way. You may choose to have a son or daughter, or a friend be your “guardian.” The guardian will pay a fee for the day.They are also beginning to accept applications from Korean War veterans; however, WWII veterans have first priority.If interested, call 260-633-0049 or go online to HonorFlight.com for further information and/or scheduling. I just returned from the flight on May 8, going as a guardian for my brother. It was a wonderful experience. Sign up, and have a good time!Harold VanGordonUpland

  • Viewpoint: Veterans' stories of patriotism, loyalty are uplifting As a professor at Ivy Tech Community College, I continually see very diverse backgrounds of our students. This semester has been especially satisfying in that the class, Fundamentals of Public Speaking, has a myriad of circumstances and lifestyles. I have been fortunate to have three veterans in my class who have served in the Armed Services.

  • Letter: City beautification ignores other areas I read in the paper where they are going to start work on their great roundabout. What a waste, they are spending millions on the south side for the great gateway to Anderson and all the while the rest of Anderson is ignored.

  • Letter: Poll shows priorities are backward Your recent polling question about schools providing free food for children tells us society has its priorities backwards. The conservatives want low taxes. 53 percent said no to feeding the kids.
