Michael B. Gunn, Ph.D.
Past President, Patriot Graves Chair CCSAR

Once again this year we members of the Cincinnati Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution had the Honor to post Colors and welcome back the 70 plus Veterans who served this country from their day trip to Washington D.C. The Simon Kenton Chapter of SAR in northern Kentucky joins us and various groups including DAR ladies, Boy Scouts about 200 family and well wishers of the travelers and the hard working staff of the “Honor Flight Tri-State” who coordinate the activities and select the Veterans.

Their mission is to offer Honor Flights to veterans so they may visit their memorials in Washington, D.C. All World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War veterans aged 65 and older, who served either stateside or overseas, are eligible; and will leave NO ONE behind! Thanks to each and every sponsor to the Flights.

Attending from Cincinnati SAR on October 23, 2018 were: President Jack Bredenfoerder, Robert Bowers, Gerald Knight, George Stewart, Michael Blum and Past President Michael Gunn. At the end of this season we give gratitude to those veterans and thank them for their service and sacrifices. God bless them and God bless these United States of America!
