Salute to troops
Kansas Honor Flight
My name is Gail and I would like to honor my father 1Sgt. William Coleman. My father is a veteran of both Korea and VietNam. He has a purple heart oak leaf cluster and a bronze star. On Wednesday May the 14th my dad and I will be traveling to Washington DC on the Kansas Honor Flight. We will be on the mall in Washington on May the 15th on a Thursday at 8:45 and Senator Bob Dole if well will meet us. We will be on the mall and visit the WWII memorial and etc. I hope someone from CNN can cover this honor flight as this is very important to all the guys. These will be the Korean vets and some like my dad from Viet Nam. My father was in 5 major battles in Korea and 1SGT. in Viet Nam. These veterans need to be thanked for their service to our Nation. We will leave Wichita KS at 8:00 am and arrive in Baltimore at 1:00 pm. Please cover the Kansas honor flight on Thursday May the 15th on the mall in Washington DC and tell the viewers to stop by and give the vets a big hug. I would like to tell my dad I love him he is a GREAT dad and I am so proud of HIm!
