An Honor Flight for two veterans

Jerry Huber has been my neighbor for 25 years and I never knew he flew 50 combat missions as a B-24 engineer-gunner in 1944-45. Earl Carey served as postmaster for half the towns in the region, including Rock Island, Waterville and Malaga. But, in 1945 he was by his own description, just a 17-year-old kid from Hartline suddenly thrust into the hurried preparations for the invasion of Japan.

Both these men will be on the Honor Flight from Spokane early Tuesday, taking a full load of World War II-era veterans to Washington, D.C., for deserved recognition and a whirlwind tour of the famed monuments. Honor Flight Network is a nationwide nonprofit effort to “transport America’s veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices.”
