Today’s local link of interest is HonorAir Knoxville.
Over 60 years ago a remarkable generation of Americans joined forces to protect civilization in the largest war in world history. No amount of gratitude could ever repay the debt for the gift of democracy these veterans gave the world. However, HonorAir Knoxville is dedicated to honoring East Tennessee World War II veterans and the sacrifices they made to ensure our freedoms. HonorAir Knoxville’s goal is to fly as many East Tennessee World War II veterans as possible to Washington D.C. to see the World War II Memorial built in their honor.
