The Land of Lincoln Honor Flight will be taking another group of Illinois veterans to Washington D.C. on September 12th. This trip will include veterans from Assumption, Charleston, Chatham, Cowden, Effingham, Herrick, Mattoon, and Stonington.
John Nolen is the veteran from Stonington on the upcoming Honor Flight. He says although he has been to D.C. before, there’s still a lot of things in Washington that he hasn’t seen.
Stanley Rich from Cowden is also going on the Honor Flight. He says they will have a busy day next Tuesday.
Nolen served in the Marines during the Korean War era while Rich was in the Air Force during the Vietnam War.
