New Honor Flight Program for Vets in Kentucky & Tennessee

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A new Honor Flight program has been set up to serve veterans in north-central Tennessee and south-central Kentucky.

Michael Flood, a 101st Airborne Division veteran, told The Leaf-Chronicle that he decided to start the Screaming Eagle Honor Flight after the nearby Music City Honor Flight in Nashville ceased operating last year.

Flood said he is currently seeking volunteers, donations and other support for his operation in Clarksville, Tenn.

Honor Flight is a privately funded nonprofit dedicated to ensuring all veterans have an opportunity to see the Washington D.C. monuments built in their honor.
