With a waiting list shrinking, local World War II and Korean War era veterans are encouraged to sign up for the opportunity to go to Washington, D.C. as part of the Honor Flight Network.

Jane Matejeck, a representative of Veterans Honor Flight of ND/MN from Hunter, N.D., spoke to a group of interested individuals last Thursday at the Vets Club in Hillsboro.

Her presentation was hosted by the Hillsboro VFW Post 4172 Auxiliary.

Matejeck said the Honor Flight is an emotional, yet therapeutic trip for many who served in the country’s armed forces during wartime.
