With the realization that their numbers are dwindling each year, the Ocala Honor Flight is trying to send two jets full of veterans to Washington D.C. to visit the World War Two memorial, the Korean War memorial , and Arlington national cemetery. Flight director of ocala honor flight Morrey Deen talked with WUFT-FM’s Tom Krynski about the plans for this year’s trip, and the need for additional donations to cover the expenses.
