Here’s a riddle: What program, conceived and inaugurated in 2009, turned 40 this year? The answer: Old Glory Honor Flight. That’s right, this program, which offers WWII, Korean War and Viet Nam veterans a memorable, safe and rewarding tour of our nation’s capital and the monuments erected in their honor, flew its 40th mission on June 7, and arrived back at the Appleton International Airport to a tumultuous welcome home!
