WASHINGTON, DC - Local veterans got the thanks they deserve when they took the Never Forgotten Honor Flight to Washington, DC last month. For many, it was a chance to share their special day with a loved one. Their children, grandchildren, and other family members served as their guardians on the flight. In many cases, the families convinced the veterans to go.
"It's a great honor to be able to go with him," said Steve Kropidlowski, who accompanying his father, James, on the 19th Never Forgotten Honor Flight.
James Kropidlowski is a Korean War veteran, but he was hesitant to go on the trip. He felt other people were more deserving of the honor. However, his wife, Maggie, urged him to go.
