To the editor:
World War II veterans are dying at a rate of 700 to 800 a day. They are in their late 80s and early 90s. There are fewer than 1 million left. Soon there will be none of us left.
TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE.
The North Country Honor Flight group is dedicated to flying as many North Country WWII veterans to Washington to see their memorial as possible.
It is a daunting task, but our group is working tirelessly to accomplish this goal.
In the last 10 days we lost two of our comrades. We don't have much time left.
Many North Country residents have been very generous in donating to our mission. On the other hand, there are many who have not heard of the North Country Honor Flight. We ask you to spread the word about our organization and our mission.
The North Country Honor Flight organization is a group of dedicated local residents who seek donations to fund these flights for our WWII veterans. Without funding, it would be impossible to carry on with this work.
Our website is northcountryhonorflight.org.
We are asking for your help. Please send donations to North Country Honor Flight, 1 Derek Drive, Keeseville, NY 12944.
We don't have much time left.
