VAN WERT — Our country is losing World War II veterans at an alarming rate,and Van Wert County Veterans Services Officer Barry Johns is leading an effort to gather local vets to participate in Honor Flight. The flights take groups of veterans to Washington D.C. to visit their monuments in the nation’s capital.
“I’m trying to get the World War II vets who haven’t seen their memorial to D.C., to see it, and to get the Korea and Vietnam veterans to sign up so they can get on the list and get a chance to go and not waiting until the last minute and be left wishing they would have went,” stated Johns.
