SERVING OUR VETERANS: Veterans honor flights for 2020

By Staff | Feb 28, 2020

The Veterans Honor Flight of North Dakota/Minnesota announced that applications will now be accepted from veterans who served through May 7, 1975. That includes veterans who served during the Vietnam War. If a Vietnam veteran previously applied, and did not serve through 1959, they are being asked to re-apply. This is a two-day event for a trip to Washington, D.C., for veterans to visit their war memorials.

The ND/MN Honor Flight also announced there will be three flights in 2020:

– From Fargo on April 26-27, 2020

– From Fargo on September 27-28, 2020

– From Grand Forks on October 25-26, 2020

Veterans Honor Flight of North Dakota and Minnesota is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for their sacrifices. Top priority is given to senior veterans from World War II and Korea, along with veterans from any war who may be terminally ill. The flight transports our veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit and reflect at their memorials. There is no cost to the veteran for the airfare, hotel costs and accommodations. It is completely free to the veteran. The flight also provides medical staff to assist the veterans with special needs.

I also have application forms, so you can contact me at 701-776-5358. Or, you can stop in and visit me at my office in the Pierce County Courthouse on Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Those veterans who have participated in this event have found it to be a wonderful and moving experience. I highly encourage qualifying veterans to apply for this trip.
