Letter: Honor Flight thrills vet Charles Miller
Updated: August 20, 2012 10:43AM
I read an article in the Aug. 9, Elm Leaves about the two brothers who went on an Honor Flight in April and just wanted to say my father, Charles Miller, went on an Aug. 1 Honor Flight and he had the most wonderful time. He is thrilled he went and constantly talks and boasts about it. He is 90 years old and it brought back memories of his days in the war and he was glad he got to go on the flight.
