PERRYVILLE, MO (KFVS) - Citizen's Electric Corporation is sponsoring the cost for one World War II veteran on CEC lines and a guardian to visit the WW II Memorial in Washington,D.C., as part of the Greater St. Louis Honor Flight program.
Now known as the "Greatest Generation," a phrase coined by journalist Tom Brokaw, WWII veterans are dying at a rate of 900 per day, according to a recent study.
The Honor Flight Network is a nonprofit organization created solely to honor America's veterans for their immense sacrifices.
The trip includes two seats on the Honor Flight charter, meals, accommodation and bus transportation throughout the trip, tentatively scheduled for November 6, 2012.
CEC's power supplier, Wabash Valley Power Association is a co-sponsor.
