Honor Flight committee thanks VFW Post


Sending 135 local veterans on an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. takes more than a committee — it takes the support, financial and otherwise, of other organizations. The James H. Smithson Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6710 was one such organization. Two members of the Clinton County Honor Flight Committee, Fred Ertle and Chairman Jack Powell, recently visited the local VFW Post to thank them for their contributions to the success of the two Honor Flights and for their service to our country. As a tangible expression of the committee’s gratitude, Ertle presented Post Commander Richard James with a plaque containing the pictures of all the Clinton County Honor Flights I & II veterans. Shown are members of the post with James, Ertle and Powell.
