The Oklahoma Gazette has featured the Honor Flight ceremonies at Rose State College for its Pearl Harbor Day issue.
Oklahoma Honor Flights was organized in the fall of 2009 as an official affiliate of Honor Flight Network, Inc. in Springfield, Ohio. Oklahoma became the 31st state to support the national effort with a non-profit organization created solely to honor Oklahoma’s World War II veterans by flying them to Washington, DC to view the World War II Memorial. Oklahoma Honor Flights founder and organizer, State Rep. Gary Banz, said the effort honors veterans and connects the community with their sacrifice and service.
“It’s one of the ways we want to engage the generations,” Banz said.
