GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -
GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The honor flight program, which sends groups of World War II veterans on day long trips to DC to visit our military monuments, is reaching out to South Mississippi.
The program has been running strong in South Alabama, and now hopes to expand to South Mississippi.
Funding for the program and flights is provided by donors and volunteers. Organizers say it's a small way to give back to a group of veterans who gave so much.
"When you're 85, 90 years old, a trip to Washington is pretty daunting, both physically and financially. So, it's important that we take them and we recognize them and they get a lot out of it," Pete Reihm said. "But you know what? The real reason is for us. It reminds us what's good and great about America."
