Kristen Powers (7News) -- Across the country, people have heard of Honor Flight. It’s an all-expenses-paid trip for America’s Veterans to Washington, D.C., so they can visit the memorials dedicated to honoring those who have served and sacrificed. The two founders of the Honor Flight Network, Earl Morse and Jeff Miller, have seen the impacts of the program first-hand and said it is much more than a trip.
Southfield (CW50) – Many of our nation’s veterans never have gotten the chance to visit the war memorials across the nation, which hold the names and dedications to their fallen brothers.
