The Central Prairie Honor Flight deserves a salute for helping Kansas veterans visit the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. The Great Bend-based group has raised money and arranged for about 1,000 veterans and their guardians to make the trip. As wonderful as it was to see the World War II Memorial and other sights, Wichitan Merle Herrick said one of the most moving experiences was being greeted at the Baltimore-Washington International Airport by hundreds of schoolchildren who waved tiny American flags and shouted “Thank you” to him and other elderly veterans. That’s what the honor flights are about _ saying “Thank you.”
