To the Editor:
World War II Veterans are dying at a rate of 700 to 800 a day, they are in their late eighties and early nineties, there are less than one million left, soon there will be none of us left. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE.
The North Country Honor Flight group is dedicated to fly as many North Country WW II veterans to Washington to see their Memorial as possible. It is a daunting task but our group is working tirelessly to accomplish this goal.
In the last ten days we lost two of our comrades, we don’t have much time left. Many North Country residents have been very generous in donating to our mission, on the other hand there are many who have not heard of the North Country Honor Flight, we ask you to spread the word about our organization and our mission.
The North Country Honor Flight organization is a group of dedicated local residents who seek donations to fund these flights for our WW II Veterans, without funding it would be impossible to carry on with this work.
Our website is: northcountryhonorflight.org. We are asking for your help, please send donations to “North Country Honor Flight,” 1 Derek Drive, Keeseville, N.Y. 12944
We don’t have much time left.
