Honor Flight makes trek to Washington, D.C.

By Michel Northsea

Two days before his 85th birthday, Sam Fowler got to take a trip he says that he “can’t brag about enough.”
Fowler was one of 104 veterans flown to the nation’s capitol last week as part of the Honor Flight.
The trip was the third Honor Flight leaving from the Ocala International Airport in the past two years taking veterans of World War II to see the memorial built in their honor.
“I was so thrilled, everything was well done, so carefully conceived,” he said about the day-long trip.
