Honor-Flight Tristate: Making a Difference One Vet at a Time

Guest Speakers:
Cheryl Popp and Scott Kuhr

Our veterans have given so much to ensure that our country remains free. Memorials in Washington, D.C. attest to their courage. However, not all veterans have the means to travel to see firsthand these meaningful memorials. Honor-Flights Tristate offers Honor Flights to all veterans of World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam war aged 65 and older who either served stateside or overseas so they may visit their memorials in Washington, D.C.

On February 19th, the Northern Hills HaZaK program will feature Cheryl Popp and Scott Kuhr who will tell about the origins of Honor Flights and the local hub as well as some stories about the veterans that have traveled with them.

When asked how she got involved with the Honor flight program, Popp replied, "Honor Flight chose me - being the daughter of a World War ll veteran, who never talked about his experiences in the war, made me more and more interested in the veterans from that era. My father was never able to go on a flight because of his failing health. I was a guardian on three flights with other veterans, and seeing the joy and tears on their faces, I knew I had to get involved.  That was 75 flights ago!!  The emotion and thank yous from the veterans make it all worthwhile."

Chery Popp has written two books featuring stories of veterans: Legacy of Courage: Stories of Honor Flight Veterans and Legacy of Courage ll: More stories of Honor Flight Veterans.  They will be available for purchase that day also.

The program will begin at noon with a luncheon followed by the lecture. Bobbi Handwerger, co-chair of Northern Hills Synagogue HaZaK said, "There is no charge for the luncheon, but advance reservations are mandatory to ensure there is enough food, and donations to offset the cost are appreciated."

For more information and to make reservations, contact Northern Hills Synagogue, 513-931-6038.
