ROCK FALLS – Veterans of World War II and the Korean War who haven’t yet signed up to participate in an Honor Flight are invited to attend an informational meeting at 6:30 p.m. June 26 at the Rock Falls American Legion, 712 4th Ave.

The meeting will cover information about the registration and eligibility for veterans to view the military memorials in Washington, D.C., built to honor their service to our country.

The Honor Flight program, launched in 2005, offers veterans an all-expenses-paid, 1-day trip to visit Washington to see the World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam memorials, as well as Arlington National Cemetery.

If you have questions, call Gary Farral at 309-659-2628 or Bob VanDeVelde at 815-499-6100.
