Valor Flight for Korean War Veterans

The Great state of Tennessee is changing the Honor Flight for WWII veterans. They are now
calling it Valor Flight, The Flight of the Not forgotten, and it is for Korean War Veterans.

After honoring over 1,000 WWII veterans, now the flight will be to take Korean War Veterans
to see the memorial, of 19 stainless steel statutes and the memorial wall.

Organizer Steve Celuch says "A lot of treasured memories surface as a result, and we hope
to recreate that experience for Korean Veterans."

The organization is looking for Tennessee Valley Korean War Veterans who live in Madison,
Limestone, Morgan, Marshall and Jackson counties.

More information can be found on the website Valor Flight The Flight of The Not Forgotten

This is a very thoughtful and touching tribute to all Korean War Veterans, one that we hope
every state will follow. They have been forgotten for a long time, and now it is time to show
all Korean War Veterans they are no longer forgotten.
