Wed, 18 Apr 2012

OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Dan Kirby will join 105 World War II veterans on an Oklahoma Honor Flight from Tulsa to Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, April 18, 2012.

“One hundred and five World War II veterans will take part in this trip,” said Kirby, a Republican representing District 75 in Tulsa. “It is an honor for me to be able to join them as they travel from Oklahoma to Washington, D.C., to visit the memorials dedicated to their service.”

Oklahoma Honor Flights is a nonprofit that seeks to give veterans a chance to visit the memorials honoring their service in Washington, D.C. The organization seeks to get 100 or more veterans on each flight and currently has a waiting list of more than 300 as applications pour in constantly.

Other flights leave from Lawton on May 4, Oklahoma City on June 6, Tulsa on Sept. 26, and Oklahoma City again on Oct. 24.
