Bill Escher (left), a World War II Army Veteran, and Don Evans, the executive director at Good Shepherd Hospice, pose in front of the D-Day section of the World War II memorial. Escher took part in the June 6, 1944 battle. Evans accompanied Escher on an Oct. 29 Honor Flight to tour the nations memorials in Washington, D.C.
Alex Moffitt, battalion commander of the Junior ROTC at George Jenkins High School in Lakeland, salutes his grandfather, Merle Holsen, as the Korean War veteran returns after a Nov. 12 Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.
Walt Godwin accompanied a patient. Susan Moffitt took her dad. Tom Conger traveled with a church member. And Don Evans started the day with a stranger and ended it with a new friend.
These four recently accompanied veterans on Honor Flights to Washington, D.C. And all four came away with a greater appreciation of the sacrifices that military veterans make to serve their country.
