More World War II veterans are getting ready to take what many consider a trip of a lifetime.
Honor Flight Buffalo introduced another group of vets who will fly from Western New York to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorial in honor of their service. Just two weeks from now, 27 of them will take the first of two planned trips thanks to generous donations.
"The veterans met their guardians, and got to know each other before the flight, and  do it in memory of all the World War II vets that aren't able to see the memorial," says Debbie Watkins.

Clarence Rotarian Norm Naab Sr , a World War II veteran will be making the May 5th Honor Flight to Washington DC to visit the WWII Memorial.  He will be accompanied by his son Norm Naab Jr, a former Clarence Rotarian and veteran as well.



Honorary Clarence Rotarian Walter Floss will be making the June 9th Honor Flight.  Also making that flight will be Rotarian Susan Ballard and Paul Justinger Jr, a veteran and the son of Clarence Rotarian Paul Justinger Sr.  Both Susan and Paul will be serving as volunteer guardians accompanying two WWII veterans from the town of Clarence residents, Roland Winters and Robert Groll. 


 Volunteers and well wishers with signs at the airport are greatly appreciated.  What better way to show your gratitude!  The send offs on May 5th and June 9th are appreciated but they are early – 5am.  The real celebrations take place at the Welcome Home ceremonies at the airport for the Veterans return.  We are looking for a great ROTARY turnout for the return of both flights – May 5th to welcome the Naab’s back and June 9th for a special Rotary presentation.  The Rotary Club of Clarence is the largest contributor to Honor Flight Buffalo and the organization is grateful for club’s generosity.  They are hoping to recognize our club at the Welcome Home ceremony on June 9th.  Mark your calendars for 9:30pm June 9th to be a part!
