Flight Honors Michigan WW2 Veterans

The Veterans Administration estimates that we lose about 500 veterans of World War Two every day. Many die without visiting the National World War Two Memorial in Washington D.C. Because of this the Honor Flight Network is on a mission. It’s trying to get as many Second World War vets to the nation’s capital as possible to visit the memorial built in their honor. This fall, it flew 83 veterans to Washington from southern Michigan free of charge and I went along with them.

Detroit's Metro Airport Welcomes Military Travelers

More than 30 million travelers pass through Detroit Metropolitan Airport each year. Many are current or former members of the Armed Services. Sensing a need to support their unique travel needs, some Delta Air Lines employees got together and created a special place for them in 2010. That eventually blossomed into the current Freedom Center in the McNamara Terminal.

The former director of the Calhoun County Veterans Affairs office has been ordered to stand trial in circuit court on new charges. Scott Losey, 45, of Portage, is now charged with three high-court misdemeanors and three misdemeanors for money and gifts he solicited from veterans and family members seeking help with disability claims between 2010 and 2015.
